Cal Western raises $2,700 for Toussaint Academy

California Western School of Law raised $2,700 for the Toussaint Academy of San Diego during its 24th Annual Halloween Auction and Bake Sale.

California Western students, faculty and staff donated their time, money, energy and baked goods in an effort to raise funds for the organization, which provides housing and support services to young people who live on the streets.

“These funds will be used to enrich our teens’ lives through the enhancement of our on-site incentive store as well as improving our life skills program,” said Toussaint Academy Director Jim Bailey. “On behalf of all the staff and residents of Toussaint, we are very grateful for all of California Western’s efforts to make this possible and excited to see how these funds will contribute to even greater positive outcomes.”

Located in downtown San Diego, the Toussaint Academy provides housing and services to homeless and runaway youth. Through the Toussaint Academy, residents learn the life skills necessary to become independent, contributing members of society.

As a partner agency of Father Joe's Villages, the organization’s mission is to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

“The generosity of our students, faculty and staff speaks to their commitment to the community, one that is shared by all of us at California Western,” said the school's dean, Niels B. Schaumann. “I am pleased that our contributions will benefit the great work of the Toussaint Academy.”

The Toussaint Academy also provides after-care services to alumni to help them maintain stability and success after graduation.
