    However, for a child without a solid support system, this need is magnified. They could be burdened with poverty, abuse, single-parent household, or other debilitating family circumstances. These could easily be some of the children that we embrace within the programs we have established. Without the benefit of a mentor or positive adult role models, these same children may end up perpetuating the same life and issues as they transition into their adult lives. These are the lives that ALYFS help change-but only with the financial support of people like you.
