Charity Brooks

2015 Youth Speaker

Charity 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.
