Those who are born into groups that segregate themselves from the “outside” world often have a difficult time surviving outside the group they grew up in. Many are left to fend for themselves without any familial support, shunned as “apostates” or “backsliders” by their former peers.
The Safe Passage Foundation was founded by people who knew all too well what this burden could be like to bear. And it is run by volunteers who know more than any why we have to do what we do: because there’s often nobody else to help when one’s family and support system turns on you.
Many of us know people who didn’t make it. Many of us know those who did, despite the odds they had against them. And we are calling on others like them who have survived to help us help our peers who are struggling right now.
We need your help with our goals of providing college scholarships and emergency financial aid to those who need it right now. We need help with everything from fundraising and outreach to graphic design and writing. There’s certainly something you can help with and it doesn’t need to take any more of your time than you can give.
For many who we are trying to help there is just nobody else they can call on. It’s on us to make a difference. Let’s do this together! Contact SPF today and join us in our efforts.
