How many times can one walk a garden path and discover an unseen flower?
Life, much like a garden of seasons, is constant in its ability to create new experiences for us. To fully appreciate the beauty of this ever changing world in which we reside, we need only stop and take notice of its varied and brilliant blooms.
Pause long enough amongst life’s abundant landscapes and you may begin to notice its rich and diverse inhabitants, from a lillte white butterfly to a single human face , all are shinning gifts, who all too often, go unnoticed.
Just as a Butterfly may be sure to visit each bright garden flower, so does The White Butterfly Fund seek to take notice of and raise awareness/funds for the less fortunate in our community, who may be suffering and in need.
Amongst these individuals to be found in the Garden of our Society are America’s Homeless and Challenged (TAY) Transitional Age Youth in Crisis.
About 50,000 youth in the U.S. sleep on the street for six months or more. Homeless youth face unique developmental challenges and vulnerability.
Often labeled The “Invisible” Homeless, they are among the least noticed and among the most threatened in our community. Most have experienced serious upheaval in their lives. Many have been abused. The longer they are on the streets, the more at risk they become.
