North Texas Giving Day, the largest giving day in the nation powered by Communities Foundation of Texas, is back on September 14, 2017! In eight years, North Texas Giving Day has generated $156 million for the community. Learn more about some of the thousands of participating nonprofits here on BubbleLife from now until Giving Day. Read more about today's featured nonprofit, Zoie’s Place, below.
Zoie’s Place is so excited to be participating in North Texas Giving Day for the first time this year. As a new nonprofit in its infancy, we feel blessed to have the opportunity to engage in a day where the community rallies together to provide for the needs of our community.
For those who aren’t familiar with our organization, Zoie’s Place provides transitional services to homeless youth aging out of foster care to equip, empower, and prepare them for adulthood. Through a structured program that provides temporary housing and teaches life skills, Zoie’s Place is able to help young women, ages 18 to 24, escape homelessness and become contributing members of society.
When you give to support Zoie’s Place, you are telling our residents that you care about their future; you are telling them they matter and their life is important. When you give to Zoie’s Place, you make these young women feel like the things they dream of can become a reality.
Most of the young women we serve are used to abandonment. They are used to people telling them they don’t have the skills to make it on their own and they will always need government assistance to support themselves. But when you give to support Zoie’s Place, you are breaking through the bondage of the lies they have been told. Your support helps us show them they matter and they are worthy of a brighter future.
In the words of our residents:
When people give to help support Zoie’s Place, it makes me feel like I can be somebody in life. I feel like you believe in me and that I can be anything I set my mind to.” -- Latrail
“I want people who support Zoie’s Place to know that you never know whose life you are changing or whose life you are saving.” – K.D.
With your help, together we can change the trajectory of the lives of these young ladies. Let’s partner together to put detours in the path of dependence and lead them on their way to self-sufficiency.
Thank you for supporting Zoie’s Place this North Texas Giving Day, and believing in the potential of the young women we serve.
