Please save the date, Sunday, April 3 at 2:00 PM., for the second of St. Michael’s “Music for Tucson” concerts.. The University of Arizona’s jazz band, the Fox Sextet, will perform for our enjoyment and to benefit Youth On Their Own.
Youth On Their Own is a local organization that helps homeless youth finish high school. Arizona is the fifth worst state for child homelessness. There are over 60,000 displaced and unaccompanied youth in the state. There are many causes for youth homelessness. Among them are death, poverty, abuse, and abandonment. These young people are facing great challenges through no fault of their own.
You may visit Youth On Their Own’s website, yoto.org, to read some of their stories. You will be as moved as I was.
Admission to the concert is by donation to Youth On Their Own. I hope we will fill the church.
