September’s Charity of the Month is DIRECTION61:3 which was established in McKinney in 2017.  They provide a holistic approach to youth ages 16-22 who are aging-out of the foster care system by helping them acquire housing, obtain a reliable car and become established into a close adult community. 
They assist these young adults with career/college preparation, life skills and the building and changing of life relationships.  DIRECTION61:3 has three residential homes licensed 12/20 by TX Department of Family & Protective Services.  All residents are considered family and are invited/encouraged to participate in regular ongoing events beyond their tenure with DIRECTION61:3. 
To supply three homes filled with teenagers here are some needed items you can bring to our meeting or drop off on my front porch:
Food dining cards, body wash, deodorant, disposable razors, Kleenex, bath towels/wash cloths, hand soap, shampoo.  Or you can order from this wish list on your and it will be automatically shipped to my address:
