The AIDS Resource Foundation for Children (ARFC) is organizing a prom event for the children and teens that participate in its youth program ( Academy Street Firehouse Youth Program).
The theme of the prom is "Imagine Me." Over the last couple of weeks, Firehouse kids have participated in activities and workshops, encouraging them to think about their dreams and aspirations, and who they imagine themselves to be in the future.
On the day of the prom, the kids will show up in costumes that represent their future selves--their imagined selves. It's the perfect opportunity for them to embrace their individuality without judgement, in a safe and welcoming environment.
We want to raise money at the event to support the program and the senior trip that Firehouse teens take every year.

We are taking referrals for our Project Nest Program, which is a long-term (2 years) transitional housing program for homeless HIV+ gay/bisexual men between the ages of 18 and 24. We have transitional homes in East Orange and the Atlantic City area.
EAT. MEET. and GREET. See you there!
