Jayden's Camp Fund

Jayden's Camp Fund

The fund is named in honor of Jayden Mclurkin, granddaughter of longtime Board member Wendell Bourne, who did not live long enough to reach the age of campership. Hildebrand began sponsoring children for summer camp in 2015.  It was established as a means of helping working families who needed quality summer activities for their children.  Over 40% of our families work or are in school.  They are also saving money to be able to move out of shelter as soon as possible, the expense delays their ability to achieve their goals.  School age children who are not engaged in quality summer activities tend to fall behind their peers in September, and children experiencing homelessness are particularly at high risk.
