Celebrating our Biggest Summer Soirée Yet!

Wind Youth Services has just concluded our annual Summer Soirée fundraising party, and it was a success thanks to a truly amazing group of volunteers, vendors, and sponsors! Wind and Goodwill want to thank all of our partners for supporting what has been the biggest Summer Soirée yet!

We were fortunate to be joined by 625 guests spanning corporate sponsors, government representatives, local engaged citizens and former recipients of human services provided by Wind, who helped us raise over $100,000 to fund homeless youth services!

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Niki Jones is reminding the youth at Wind Youth Services Drop-In Center that the space where they come to relax, access services and enjoy a hot meal will be  closed for the next two days. Wind is one of only a few Sacramento organizations with the sole mission of working with homeless youth. Its drop-in center opens its doors to young people seeking respite seven days a week, excluding holidays. Jones, a street outreach worker at Wind, hands out gloves, socks, scarves and tarps — essentials that will help get them through the next two days.  Jones says socks are a huge need — a basic item that, without organizations like Wind, Sacramento’s homeless youth would possibly go without.
