In a Nutshell

Donations to help provide a youth seeking emergency shelter with first two days of critical care, including family-reunification attempts

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to ACH Child and Family Services. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide email address upon purchase. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Youth Experiencing Homelessness

An estimated 1.6–2.8 million youth run away from home each year, according to National Safe Place, a youth-runaway-prevention program. Runaway youth are at greater risk than their peers for developing a large number of behavioral issues and health problems including sexually transmitted diseases, and they usually experience higher arrest rates and lower incomes.

The Campaign: Emergency-Shelter Services for Youth

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then ACH Child and Family Services can provide the first two days of critical care for one youth aged 10–17 seeking emergency-shelter services. During this time, the youth will receive meals and snacks; personal care items, clothes, and school supplies; a health screening and medications, if necessary; supportive services that include counseling and a family-reunification effort; and two hours of recreation or outings. Every additional $300 raised will be used to provide another youth with two days of critical care at the emergency shelter.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

ACH Child and Family Services

Operating according to the belief that all children deserve a safe and nurturing childhood, ACH Child and Family Services strives to protect children from abuse, neglect, and family separation. All programs—whether they try to keep children and families together or provide healing homes for children who can’t live with their families—work toward the goal of helping children live healthy, productive lives. ACH’s programs serve more than 3,000 children, youths, and families each year, and an additional 14,000 youths receive critical safety information through outreach and education services.
