Fall 2016 Community Service Project

 

nextstep-logoCAPA’s  fall community service project is collecting items to benefit Next Step, a program under Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry.

Next Step provides shelter care for youth, ages 12-17, who are without a home or a stable living environment.  Next Step also offers semi-independent living in apartment and group living settings for youth, ages 16-21, who will be exiting the foster care system. Its emphasis is preparation for living independently.

Next Step is in need of the items listed below. Please give items to your chapter delegate to bring to the November 10 CAPA Board meeting. If you have items which are too large to transport, you can contact Michelle Morris from NextStep at 216-221-8920 or mlatham-morris@lmmyouth.org.
