We love to do good work. And not only for our clients.
Prosperity means most when it is shared. And communities are stronger when we all do our part. As a firm and as individuals, these are beliefs we hold dear. Giving time and financial support to a variety of organizations is integral to our culture. It’s one more way we take the concept of service seriously.
Did You Know There Are Needs in Bellevue?
35% of the students at Odle Middle School receive free or reduced price meals
42% of the students at Highland Middle School do also
43% of these student’s first language is not English
The American way of life is a new culture for these families
How Trutina is Helping Today: By providing financial assistance to student families for holiday meals, holiday gifts and basic necessities like milk and bread.
Beginning this spring we will be Providing Longer Term Help through a series of workshops for all Odle Middle School families. Teaching students and their parents about financial literacy, life and work skills to help them be more successful in our community.
A goal to enroll each “at risk”* young person at Odle and Highland Middle School in the Economis skills program. Economis, designed by YFC, provides daily real world experience in using a credit/debit card, earning, spending, online banking, taxes and wages. This experience, however, occurs in a virtual world so that mistakes and problems can become instructive without the consequences of the real world.
A study conducted by Search Institute identified 40 building block behaviors that shape the mental, emotional, spiritual and healthy development of a young person. When a child engages in at least 31 of the building block behaviors they succeed at a much higher rate and avoid “at risk”* behaviors; young people that fall below are likely to get involved in at risk behaviors. Only 8% of these young people are on track towards positive outcomes. Providing the tools and help in building good behaviors can change dozens of kid’s lives for the better.
You can help us make a difference and give additional hope to these students and their families. Please help us with a financial or volunteer contribution.
