Sarah is the Homeless & Foster Care Liason for Grand Haven Area Public Schools. She has a passion for helping others, especially teens who are homeless or become homeless during the school year to ensure they have the support and care they need to continue their education in a very unsettling time. She came on board in 2017 as the GHAPS liaison and connected with Steven and his efforts through Community Care For Teens. She is tireless in her efforts to help homeless teens get the support they need to survive and succeed.
A stay at home mom with three kids, Wendy has a love for helping others. She was part of Steven’s ‘Pay It Forward’ Project four years ago, and when she learned of the large homeless teen population in Grand Haven, she decided she had to get involved. She connected with Sarah Elliot, the GHAPS Homeless and Foster Care Liaison and has been helping to bring aid, comfort, and support to homeless teens in the Grand Haven area ever since.
Four years ago, Steven was given a $20 bill with the challenge to ‘Pay It Forward’ and find a way to help someone in need. Through his efforts and the help of many generous people, Steven turned that $20 bill into $1000 and then $5000. His efforts gave rise to the Community Care for Teens program which sponsored 45 teens last year and raised $7500. His passion is helping teens during the most challenging and crucial period of their lives and help them survive and succeed.
