Pennies are much like the youth we serve; they are often times tossed aside, stepped over, forgotten and not valued. How often have we intentionally stepped over pennies on the sidewalk? Just as often we step over youth caught in the traps and addictions of the streets. We want to change that, and we believe you can help! By exposing the lie, and seeing the real value of our youth, we will not only raise the bar in our own belief systems, we can make a tremendous impact on the community around us in sharing this simple story. The next time you see a penny on the street or some random place, stop and pick it up, think about the hundreds of youth on the streets of Portland, and consider what you can do to make a difference.... one penny at a time!
