Our Mission: ‘SPEAK exists to help raise awareness about the critical issues and lingering needs within our communities facing children and youth, women and their families and the poor through the use of technology, multi-media tools, activities, events and programs. The goal is to produce positive change in the lives of those whose voices are not being heard and needs are not being met.
Project Care Bags is a SPEAK initiative that is headed by Caroline K. a Girl Scout to provide large sturdy duffle bags to youth in foster care as they transition from placement to placement. The SYC helped by making backpacks to be distributed with the duffle bags and personal care items.
