News & Notes

David & Margaret Youth and Family Services is grateful for the women who work here to help provide for and nurture the future women history makers each and every day! Thank you Shelia, Noemy, Linda and all the women of David & Margaret for all you do to Renew Hope and Inspire Change.

The Joan Macy School Award Ceremony Banquet was held recently.  It was a full room overflowing with love and laughter. Friends and families enjoyed an Italian dinner and chocolate strawberry cake. Teachers shared meaningful stories honoring the students’ hard work, dedications, and improvements. Director Charles Rich started off the ceremony congratulating all the students and teachers on their collective efforts. Many students received awards but most notable were Andre, Carlotta, and David & Margaret resident Leilani. It was inspiring and emotional listening to their teachers present the awards.

Former foster youth Joy Clarke’s recent graduation from Cal Poly Pomona is a testament to her laser-sharp focus on her future.

    I am the person I am today because of D&M! The best advice I would want to give to the young ladies in D&M today is... Don’t look at you being placed there as a down fall rather a stepping stone to your future! Take advantage of all the golden opportunities at hand! This program works if you work it! The staff members want to see you succeed they are there everyday because they care! Best wishes to all the youth in D&M and a huge Thank you to all the staff members that show up everyday and don’t walk out on the job because it’s to hard and stressful! You are important to these girls!
