Windermere Redmond will be volunteering their day with Friends of Youth at their Youth Service Center in Kirkland. Friends of Youth has been helping young people since 1951 in challenging circumstances get their lives back on track. Today, they have facilities in 18 cities across the Puget Sound, and operate the only overnight youth shelters on the Eastside. They also offer youth development initiatives, in-home family support for young parents of newborns, parent education, youth and family counseling, substance abuse counseling, therapeutic foster care, and transitional housing for homeless young people and teen mothers.
Windermere Redmond brokers will be leading an extreme yard makeover for the youth center. They’ll be refreshing the landscaping, weeding, and planting and restoring flowers and plants to prep them for summer. Donation sorting and repackaging will also be on the agenda to make it easier for youth to find the supplies they need.
