Kirk Capital Advisors Gives Back

By: Gaby S. Dominguez

It is an honor to support the mission of the residential program called Youth for Tomorrow, or YFT, which is located in Bristow, VA. Their mission is to provide children and families with the opportunity to focus on their lives.  They provide them with the resources to help develop the confidence, skills, intellectual ability, spiritual insight and moral integrity to implement positive change to benefit the child, the family, the community, and the nation¹. They serve people of all ages whose lives are in crisis. Some levels of care at Youth for Tomorrow include Treatment Group Homes, Crisis Intervention Counseling Services, Outpatient Services, and Intensive In-Home Services.

 

On Tuesday, December 14, 2021, I had the privilege of gathering gifts for the holidays for teens who are staying at YFT, including the boys who live in the Washington Courage House, and delivering them in-person. I got to speak briefly with Karen Cole, the Director of Community Outreach and Donor Administration, who described how important receiving these presents are for the people at YFT, as many may not have experienced normal holidays prior.

Mid-Year Outlook: Putting the Inflation Genie Back in the Bottle. Can the Fed Engineer a Soft Landing?
