HOW YOUR REGISTRATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE:
Dashing Thru The Glow is raising funds for the Coastal Horizons Open House Youth Shelter and Toys for Tots.

The Open House Youth Shelter is committed to improving the safety and well-being of displaced abused, neglected and vulnerable youth.  Children and adolescents ages 6-18 who are in need of a safe place to stay can receive shelter in the 24-hour, 9-bed facility. Open House does more than just meet youths' basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. Personal growth is encouraged through counseling services, vocational/educational opportunities, life skill building, and recreational activities. All confidential services are provided at no cost to youth and their families, and continue for a period of three months after discharge, to maximize the success of the family reunification plan.
