We mourn the loss of Benevolent team member Kyle Kehus. Gifts to help someone in need will honor his legacy.

Kamela

My job title is Community Housing Coordinator. My work involves intensive case management with current, former and emancipated foster youth which includes employment and education, mental health referrals, and permanency planning.
What I like about my job is that I can see young women and men pursue their goals regardless of their past circumstances.
