serve over 3,000 youth in Maricopa County, AZ
EVERY YEAR...

These 60 youth are NO LONGER HOMELESS! They’ve
successfully moved through Tumbleweed programs to
NOW being in their own aparments! They’re all
working and/or in school
& continuing to work very hard at making a NEW life for themselves. Most have NO family or resources to have a Thanksgiving Meal so,
we want to help them!

We are collecting donations to purchase Gift Cards
for our youth so they can purchase the food they need
to make a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner!

We even have STAFF who have volunteered to help these youth COOK their FIRST Thanksgiving Day Meal!

NEW SHORT FILM FEATURING TUMBLEWEED
-- VERY INFORMATIVE --

Fred Smith is a filmmaker from Tampa, Florida who visited Tumbleweed last year with Zach Bonner on his "March Across America". This is his words to us...

"To say that visiting your organization and meeting young adults like Chris Plentywounds changed me would be an enormous understatement. I made a short film about Zach and his quest to help homeless youth that I am proud to say helped raise funds to create Tampa's first and only center (so far) for homeless youth. The film titled 'The Invisible Youth of America' features Tumbleweed and includes interviews with Derek & Chris..."
