What a year! Please help us make our end of year goal of raising $25,000 for Kid City!
2016 went by so fast only a small part of our work is represented on this website. By this fall, Kid City had helped nearly 200 students enroll in college, and at Kid City, 25 volunteer mentors helped another 50 high school seniors prepare their applications. Five outstanding interns participated in our summer internship in urban ministry,
The year is not quite over, but one of the best things to happen EVER was FoxGives renovation of our Kid City space. It is beautiful! FoxGives came through again this week, when volunteers brought piles and piles of gifts for 23 of our families. Our hearts were filled with the Christmas spirit, and we loved introducing Kid City students to the FoxGives volunteers, who also had homemade tamales, pan dulce, and champurado. Yum! Other great things that happened this year -- the Kid City band performed at Los Angeles City Hall, our second big Ultreya! event celebrated Kid City's first three college graduates, and this week -- our first ever leadership retreat for college students, "Recalibrating our Power as a Community". We look forward to more education, more leadership, more friendship in 2017.
