Southern Symposium to End Youth Homelessness

Several of our Pendleton Place staff were recently able to participate in the
1st Annual Southern Symposium on Solutions to End Youth Homelessness.  Executive Director, Jed Dews, shared "By connecting with youth service providers from across the country, Pendleton Place expanded its toolkit for ending youth homelessness; thanks to  Point Source Youth, we walked away from the symposium with a deeper understanding of effective, proven methods for moving young people from the streets to safe, permanent housing."

Executive Director, Jed Dews, Residential Director, Halla Banafa and Youth Resource staff, Josh Crocker and Ethan Johnstone, attending the Symposium along with partners from Safe Harbor, Pride Link, and other organizations across South Carolina.  
Smith House: On the Road

Many teenagers count down the days until they can get their driver's license and the same is certainly true for our Smith House residents where this milestone is much anticipated and celebrated.  Thanks to the efforts of a generous community donor, coordinated through our partners at DSS, one Smith House resident received an extra helping hand on the road to independence - her own car!

She was very surprised and thankful to receive this amazing gift and  Pendleton Place staff were excited to be on hand for the big reveal.
Rock'n On The Runway 

Pendleton Place is proud to be a partner and beneficiary for Arizona's Children's Charities Rock'n On The Runway charity event. In addition to being a really fun evening, this is also a major fundraiser for Pendleton Place.

Volunteer Spotlight: eXp Realty

Pendleton Place was recently selected by eXp Realty as a community partner and recipient of their I Heart eXp Day.  Several eXp realtors came out to beautify our campus by planting flowers in pots as well as an herb and vegetable garden for our Smith House residents and staff.

Realtor, Beth Lattimore Hardin, shared "Two of our core values are community and service and we wanted to give back in a meaningful way."  

Big thanks to the whole eXp team for bringing some beauty and color to our Pendleton Place campus!
