Emerie Hilton was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in February of last year.  Type 1 diabetes requires constant monitoring of blood sugars because high or low numbers can be life threatening. Since Emerie is so young, the Hilton family is trying to acquire a diabetic service dog that is trained to alert on highs and lows.
 
Partnering with Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers, the Hilton family is working towards their fundraising goal of $25,000. In an effort to help raise these funds, we are asking for the support of local businesses and civic organizations to help us raise the funds to cover the cost of Emerie Hilton’s service dog.
 
Please help support our fundraising efforts. Until there’s a cure, there’s a dog.
 
Thank you for all of your support!

Over the years, The Real World Program for youth has been successful in helping young people develop life skills, including carving out educational and career plans, learning the basics of getting and keeping a job, and locating appropriate housing, but mostly, it has introduced youth to the variety of options that are available to young people. These youth quickly learn it can be a real jungle out there!
Credits, debits, assets, liabilities, debt ratio—
Welcome to the Jungle!
Real World presents Money Jungle  is a  1 hour simulation of the real world. In hourly increments, youth will learn to write a check, maintain a register, use an ATM, apply for a loan, request a credit report, and more. The event will address decisions youth make in  lifestyle choices (such as housing, transportation, leisure, etc.). Youth will be provided a salary  and challenged to take their salary and develop a budget based on every day needs (food, electricity, rent, etc.).

At 5:18 you will see a testimonial from one of our youth that went through the simulation.
