TD Bank Charitable Foundation Provides Grant for Youth Program

Treasure Coast, FL  — Hibiscus Children’s Center is pleased to announce that a $5,000 grant was received from TD Bank Charitable Foundation.  This generous donation will help fund the Hibiscus Children’s Center Career Pathways to Independence Program.  Hibiscus is excited to partner once again with TD Bank as together, we continue to help individuals and families access much-needed basic human services and programs.

The mission of the TD Bank Charitable Foundation is to support, respect and improve the quality of life in the diverse communities where they live and do business.  They accomplish this through commitment to improve the access to safe, clean affordable housing, economic development, educational opportunities for community members, and the provision of basic human needs when otherwise unattainable. TD Bank Charitable Foundation fosters and create collaborative opportunities that bring community partners together for the enrichment of communities where they live and serve. TD Charitable Foundation is making a vital difference for the Career Pathways to Independence Program.  This program, located at the Hibiscus Village, helps alleviate some of the stresses foster care youth face as they approach 18 and helps set the stage for lifelong success. This creative youth education program provides foster youth, ages 13 – 17 living at the Hibiscus Village, with innovative support, structure, and guidance they need to receive a high school diploma or GED and to provide them the best possible future.   Additionally, the program will prepare foster youth for independence.  The teens participate in forward-thinking career exploration, testing and assessments related to career interests, self-esteem, and work related personality, pre-employment training, multiple internships in local businesses, mentoring, and weekly structured focus groups seminars on topics including completing college and job applications, resume writing, creating a budget and more.

Thank you to TD Bank for helping our youth succeed and helping them to build a strong foundation for the future.
