November 2019: Briarpatch Youth Services
Each month, Delta Beer Lab highlights a nonprofit partner doing work that aligns with our mission.
In Dane County it is estimated approximately 300 youth go to bed homeless each night. 1 in 3 youth will be approached for sex in exchange for food, shelter, drugs, etc. within 48 hours of leaving home; 75% of these youth have already or will drop out of school. These are good kids in bad situations and they need our help. The staff at Briarpatch Youth Services work with these youth to make sure they have the resources and support they need in order to succeed.
This month 300 flags have been placed to represent the number of teens who are homeless. Briarpatch is here to help these young people. Our 24 helpline is 608.251.1126 or toll-free 800.285.2776.
Join us to raise awareness and funds for these critical services. Coming up at Delta Beer Lab: Trivia on Wed. 11/20 at 7-9pm and Brat Fry on Fri. 11/22 from 4-7pm.
