Empowering Youth Breakfast: An Arizona Tax Credit Opportunity!

October 26, 2017, 7:00am - October 26, 2017, 8:30am

Please join us for this free breakfast event. You will learn how an investment in a homeless teen today creates the leaders of tomorrow-- and a strong future for our community. As you enjoy a complimentary full breakfast, we will share how your support helps Homeless Youth Connection provides teens experiencing homelessness with basic needs and resources including food, clothing, school supplies, life skills training and housing. We invite you to learn how your investment provides HYC teens hope for tomorrow. Thanks to the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit Program for Qualifying Charitable Organizations, ARS §43-1088, state taxpayers can help Homeless Youth Connection and be eligible for an Arizona State tax credit of up to $400 for individuals and $800 for married couples. No need to itemize. Information about the tax credit will be available at the breakfast. Please use the ticket link below to register.
