COVID-19 Response, Message of Encouragement

In times of uncertainty, we connect with family for comfort and reassurance. Many youth and young adults with a history of foster care do not have these support systems in place.  In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, they are struggling with anxiety and loneliness as well as all the challenges they were already facing.  The dedicated staff at David & Margaret continue to support and care for the young adults. While that is a good start, we are turning to you, the community, for help. 

You are invited to write notes to the young adults with words of encouragement to shower these hard-working young adults with support and kindness - to let them know they are not alone during these trying times. Your notes will be delivered along with food and supplies that are being distributed in the coming days and weeks. 

Please feel free to use the 7 Be's in your notes. The staff has been focusing on with the young adults. 

Be wise, 
Be happy, 
Be informed, 
Be optimistic, 
Be resilient, 
Be grateful, 
Be prayerful.

You can also send in a written letter or download a PDF postcard here that you can mail. Please address them to COMPASS Programs at 1350 Third St. La Verne CA 91750. 


Right now your words of support and encouragement for the young adults served by David & Margaret are what is being requested. If you are in a position to consider offering financial support to the agency at this time that would be wonderful. David & Margaret's programs are deemed essential services and the dedicated staff remain committed to support the youth and families in our care.  As a result of COVID-19, David & Margaret has experienced a significant drop in revenue and has already depleted our limited reserves. Any all support is truly appreciated.
