How We Help

Youth From At-Risk Communities


Here at Pink Lemons, we apply practicality and dignity to everything we do. Whether it’s providing suitcases or basic essentials to youth in care, hosting youth empowerment workshops, providing life skills, academic support, or even unique cultural experiences.

Pink Lemons is on a mission to impact better outcomes, and make life sweeter for disadvantaged youth, families, and communities.

Transformative mentoring is at the very basis of what we do, then we apply evidence-based programming and trauma-informed care. Thriving, resiliency, violence prevention, inclusion and dismantling racism, is at our core. We make referrals to other organization or agencies, When critical or wrap-around resources, such as mental health or housing, is needed, we will refer or makes recommendations to other organizations.

help to
Foster Children

When Youth in care, age out of foster care on their 18th birthday, these children are provided a black trash bag to pack up whatever belongings they may have. These trash bags send the wrong message to children whose biggest desire is to just be part of a loving home. Our suitcases provide dignity and help send a different message. A message that communicates that you are not alone and others care!
