Daybreak Youth Soars to Success
Jasmine, 21 years old with sparkling brown eyes and a mile-wide smile, was kind enough to share her Daybreak experience at our Champions for Youth breakfast and luncheon fundraisers in November 2015. Jasmine delivered her remarks with confidence, greatly impressing the almost 500 guests in attendance. In March 2012, shortly before turning 18, Jasmine had to leave home. She stayed with various friends and relatives at first. After graduating from high school that May, she headed to St. Vincent’s shelter for homeless women. While at St. Vincent’s, Jasmine was surprised to learn that that Daybreak could help her. Though she’d stayed in Daybreak’s shelter as a younger teen, she didn’t realize that Daybreak was even an option for an 18-year-old.
