Charity’s cash appeal to put it on solid footing for next financial year

A charity for helping young men has appealed for donations after reporting a heightened demand for assistance.

Transitional Community Services, which aids at-risk men aged 18 to 34, called for help to raise $65,000 by the end of its fiscal year on May 31.

TCS thanked donors for boosting its services with $740,000 over this year. But it said a last push for $65,000 would put the charity on a solid footing for the start of its next fiscal year on June 1.

A spokeswoman said: “Over the past year, TCS has created a space of safety for young adult men who desire to live life differently.

“Through case management, employability skill building and counselling services, men have started to set and accomplish their individual goals, thus increasing their stability in the community.”

The charity’s group workshops helped build “a sense of belonging and connectedness”, she said.

“We are pleased to report that some of our men have increased their stability by obtaining more secure housing, getting employment, accessed education resources and have taken advantage of skills development opportunities.”

TCS gets support through the chronic disease innovation programme managed by the Bermuda Health Council.

It has also been unveiled as one of the charity recipients of the 2022 Convex End-to-End.

The spokeswoman said: “The increased demand by referrals, and the complexity of the needs of these men, demonstrate that there is a clear need for our services.”

Donations to the cause can be made through the TCS website here.
