Charity of the Month: HomePlate Youth Services

Dr. Thomas Potiowsky, has selected HomePlate Youth Service to receive a ELGL donation in his honor. To learn more about HomePlate Youth Service, read below.

HomePlate supports the positive development of young people experiencing homelessness or housing instability through community building, education, access to services and resources, and youth empowerment.  We do this primarily through a drop-in every Monday and Thursday from 6 to 8 pm.  The drop-in includes a free weekly meal and access to a variety of resources.

All youth up to age 24 are welcome at HomePlate regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender or any other perceived difference.  While the program is housed in a church, it is not a religious program.  There are no strings, no questions, no judging, no preaching, no drugs, no alcohol, no weapons, no drama.
