Y Impact Stories
“In the midst of everything Little Treasures was a bright ray of hope. They worked with us to provide scholarship for the children so they could stay in childcare where I knew they were safe and secure and I could keep working. Thanks to Little Treasures, my family is finally moving forward into a better situation.” -Little Treasures Childcare Center Y Scholarship Recipient
“Upon arriving, I was very shy and anxious as usual. However, as the week progressed I made lots of friends and came out of my shell thanks to the counselors and my cabin. I tried a lot of new things and found new skills that I didn’t know existed. I had more fun than expected and I hope to come next year” –Camp Miller Camper Kristin, 2015
“Matt is so cool! He is just like a brother to me…He taught me to be a bigger and better man. Matt is the best thing that has ever happened to me.” -Mentor Duluth Mentee Nick
