2010 YPI KIDS Project:Tomorrow

I am please to announce that the YPI KIDS partner for the 2010 Project: Tomorrow is The Home for Little Wanderers which is one of the oldest and most recognized non-profit child and family service agencies in the nation. Originally founded as an orphanage in 1799, The Home today plays a leadership role in delivering services to thousands of children and families each year through a system of therapeutic residential, community-based and prevention programs, direct care services, and advocacy.

The specific group within The Home that YPI KIDS will be working with is the Children's Community Support Collaborative (CCSC). The program provides a flexible network of community-based services for children, adolescents and their families, facing a range of emotional and behavioral challenges, in order to promote emotional wellness, self-reliance and sustained health over time.

CCSC works with a maximum of 50 children and families at a time and nine of these children will take part in 2010 Project:Tomorrow.

The Finale Exhibition will be held in October at Copley Place Mall, Boston. The Preview night will be on October 14, 2010 and Simon Property Group has graciously agreed to host this event.
