The Story of ARIEL - Brightening Birthdays
Instead of being on the streets for this year’s birthday, Ariel and her Mom were safe and warm at the VOA Family Shelter.
Ariel had never had a cake before, or a party with balloons and a crowd of people singing "Happy Birthday." But instead of being on the streets for this year’s birthday, Ariel and her Mom were safe and warm at the VOA Family Shelter surrounded by others with smiles on their faces.
Because of you children like Ariel don't just gain a roof over their head at our emergency shelters, they create new memories and learn what love and friendship can provide.
