Kappa Alpha Psi Brothers Are Fully Furnishing The First Apartments of Emancipated Foster Kids In California

The Carlsbad Laguna Temecula Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. in California is doing some major work in the community for foster youth.
The chapter was founded in 2009, and has since been dedicated to community outreach through its Guide Right Program. The Guide Right Program was implemented by the the chapter in an effort to provide resources and opportunity for underserved foster youth. Through the program the brothers of the chapter provide annual outreach to various foster youth in their area through two programs that work to improve their lives.

The two programs include:

My First Home
Twice a year CLT partners with foster youth agency Just In Time to supply emancipated foster youth with full furnishing for their first apartments as a way to bridge the gap from foster care to having to care for themselves.

My First Home is the next coming event for CLT from their Guide Right Program. It will take place this coming fall of 2018.

Boys to Men
Once a year, the chapter partners with foster youth agency Orangewood Foundation to supply brand new suits, tie tying tutorials and give aways for foster youth. The give away includes brand new suits, ties, belts, shirts and shoes. A tailor is provided at the event so that all of the suits are tailored to fit.  Partnering with their fellow Fraternity Brother Kwame Jackson and his menswear and fashion accessory company “Ties By Kwame”

This is community work that we can all stand behind. We at Watch The Yard would like to commend these brothers for doing such powerful service.
