Our focus is youth from disadvantaged communities, youth for which we cannot build the future for, but who we can build for what the future will bring. It takes a village, join ours today!
Here at Pink Lemons, through our donations of suitcases and basic essentials, empowerment workshops, educational scholarships or unique experience like traveling aboard, we are helping youth, finish the phrase, “ when life throws you lemons…”
Pink Lemons provides services and programs to youth-in-care (foster care youth) throughout Illinois, as well as under-resourced and underserved youth throughout Cook County and Chicago.
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!
