EXIT Youth Hub
It’s been a long time dream to establish a one-stop-shop for vulnerable youth ages 12-24, who are looking for a path to a brighter future.
That dream came true when Wood’s Homes opened its third campus in the community of Inglewood. The new facility is now home to 6 programs that provide specific wraparound services for homeless and at-risk youth, creating the EXIT Youth Hub.
Don't delay your year-end donation to receive your 2018 tax receipt! Donations made via mail must be postmarked by December 31. Thank you for your support throughout the year. We wish you a wonderful holiday season!
