2015 Youth Speaker
Brooks, a former foster youth and a Unity Care alumna of our
transitional housing program, bravely shared her story of survival. A
powerful excerpt from her speech reads, "I would like you to take my
story and use it as motivation to help youth in the community. Look
beyond their outer shell because we often pretend that everything is
ok. Take the time to talk to them, look into their eyes and see for
yourself what you can do for them. They really just need a big hug to
get through the day."
We are truly proud of Charity for being an
advocate for the foster youth in our community.

YouthLive 2015 Highlights
Guests were inspired by our keynote speaker, Leigh Anne Tuohy, who eloquently stated, "it's about loving someone who doesn't look like you. You were born with the ability to make a difference in a person's life."
Unity Care invites you to support our 2016 YouthLive gala, set for Saturday, April 23, 2016.
