Dunlap have been valued community partners to Ward Home, supporting at-risk foster youth in achieving their dreams.
For the past two years, Mr. Dunlap’s generosity has made it possible for us to host our annual Recognition Dinner at the beautiful LeMont Restaurant. This dinner celebrates Ward Home’s at-risk foster youth who are graduating from high school, as well as the winners of the Ward Home Scholarship award. Ward Home at-risk foster youth overcome adversity and difficult challenges every day, and often are not given the opportunity to celebrate how far they have come.
Because of the support of Mr. Dunlap, we have been able to give our foster youth a memorable graduation celebration that they will treasure for the rest of their lives.
In addition to the support of Mr. Dunlap, CentiMark has been making holiday dreams come true for Ward Home at-risk foster youth and their children for the past six years. Many Ward Home youth come from traumatic backgrounds and the holidays can be a hard time
With the support of CentiMark, we have been able to give our foster youth and their young children a Christmas party at Dave and Buster’s for the past six years. This evening of food, prizes, games and holiday cheer would not be possible without the support of CentiMark! for them emotionally.
On behalf of the staff, board of directors, and most importantly, the at-risk foster youth of Ward Home, we would like to congratulate CentiMark and Mr. Dunlap on 50 amazing years! Here’s to 50 more years of generosity and success!
