Scholarship for at risk youth (ID 4118)
- Start Date:
- Here at Carr & Weatherby, we care deeply about the homeless population in Atlanta. We have had the privilege of serving our homeless population in a number of cases, including securing millions of dollars for the families of homeless victims killed in fatal accidents in Atlanta. We have also worked on cases involving homeless persons and truck accidents and other wrongful death cases. We have also worked extensively with the Atlanta Mission, which provides food and shelter for the homeless in our area, and we want to help in our own way. Because of this, we have created a Scholarship for At-Risk Youth, which we hope can help create a brighter future for deserving students pursuing their dreams.While one may associate homelessness with older adults, youth may also find themselves without a secure place to live. When a young person has no home, or worries about where they will sleep that night, education often becomes an afterthought. That’s why we have created the Carr & Weatherby Scholarship for At-Risk Youth. We want to give back to the community by offering help to students who are homeless or who have experienced homelessness, including at-risk, foster care and/or youth with critical financial needs.
