It saddens us to report to the field that PRIDE Youth Programs experienced a very unfortunate incident over the weekend. The West Michigan area was struck by some very severe weather including thunderstorms. According to the local fire department our national office was struck by lighting shortly after midnight. Board of Directors and staff want to assure the thousands of young people and adult advisors that represent PRIDE Youth Programs that the work we do across this great nation is done locally by you and all who represent you.

We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers and continue to support us in any manner you may be able. Please continue to contact any of our national staff by email at...

or certainly

We will work hard over the next couple of days to temporally relocate our national office.


We wish to remind everyone our work is done from our heart and our passion not from any buildings we may occupy.
