On September 22, 2017, Coldwell Banker Island Properties donated $5,000 to nonprofit Maui Youth & Family Services (MYFS) through its Community Investment Program. MYFS empowers youth and families challenged with behavioral issues to become responsible, self-fulfilled and contributing members of the community. Programs include adolescent outpatient and school-based substance abuse treatment, emergency shelter, therapeutic foster care, outreach and advocacy, support for homeless and former foster youth, prevention programs and one-on-one mentoring.
“We are tremendously grateful for this generous donation,” said MYFS CEO Jud Cunningham. “These funds will make a direct impact on the lives of some Maui’s most vulnerable youth by giving them opportunities to succeed within a safe and supportive environment.”
The donation came after Coldwell Banker announced the launch of its $100,000 Community Investment Fund in July, which targets charities and organizations with strong mandates to improve experiences for Maui’s youth and young adults.
