Just four days after announcing a serious financial situation that would potentially close its doors, the Pro Deo board of directors is elated to share that our community has stepped forward in tremendous love and support to raise just over $63,000 in pledges and donations! With a goal of $150,000 yet to be met, the board feels strongly that other opportunities are forthcoming and has set a goal to continue to strive for the additional funding. September 15 is our date to reach this goal.
In the meantime, Pro Deo’s doors will be open to teens after school beginning Tuesday, August 22, as we had originally planned. Additionally, and in the meantime, the board will be working diligently evaluating the organization’s budget, expenses and staffing requirements, defining strategies for future sustainability, and assuring Prod Deo has the resources needed to help teens and our community.
Donations can be made at www.prodeoyouthcenter.org. Monthly contributions are especially helpful, but all donations are deeply appreciated. Please visit our Facebook page for continued updates on our progress www.facebook.com/ProDeoYouthCe
