Conference Charity

Briarpatch Youth Services  
In Dane County it is estimated approximately 300 youth go to bed homeless each night. 1 in 3 youth will be approached for sex in exchange for food, shelter, drugs, etc. within 48 hours of leaving home; 75% of these youth have already or will drop out of school. These are good kids in bad situations and they need our help. The staff at Briarpatch Youth Services work with these youth to make sure they have the resources and support needed in order to succeed. 

We will not be holding our traditional WASFAA Raffle at the Spring Conference. Instead, we hope you will support our fundraising efforts for Briarpatch through a Beverage Pull and 50/50 Raffle. Watch your email and the WASFAA Facebook page for more information!

Additionally, we'll be selling fanny packs and donating those proceeds as well! Find order information here.
