BEST BUY Giving Goes Local with $6,000 Grant to Support Runaway Emergency Services 

CHARLOTTESVILLE — CYFS is pleased to announce a grant of $6,000 from the Best Buy Children’s Foundation to support the Runaway Emergency Services Program (RESP).

Best Buy uses its Community Grants to allow local stores to support local programming that provides opportunities for young teens that are related to education, life skills, leadership skills or relationship development.  Their generous grant to CYFS will support counseling for teens to help them improve their relationships with their families.  Services are directed at teens that have run away from home, are homeless or are at risk of running away.  The counseling services are designed to ensure that they are safe and off the streets.  Prevention efforts help teens in crisis work on healthier relationships to avoid becoming runaway or homeless.  Over 245 local youth will benefit from services this year.
