2021 Holiday Wish Lists and Donations

 

 

This year, Challengers Independent Livng offers two great ways to help our youth celebrate the holidays with hope and happiness: their own wish lists, and a donation sign-up page for donations to assist with purchasing gifts and gift cards for them. The links are below. If you choose to purchase an item on the wish list page, please make sure it gets delivered to Challengers no later than Friday, December 17, 2021. We appreciate YOU! Wishing you and your loved ones a beautiful and joy-filled holiday season!

ANNUAL COLLEGE TOURS

Challengers provides the opportunity for our transitional-aged youth to tour colleges on the east coast during spring break week.  This experience exposes them to campus-life and allows them to ask admissions-related questions in person.  We also encourage and assist our teens to apply for Maryland's Waived-Tuition Program, which is only utilized by a staggering 1% of children in the foster care system. Most of our participants are very interested in going to college, and many have graduated from & received degrees from Trinity, University of Maryland, Coppin and Towson State Universities!
