Since 1993, The Laurel Foundation has provided year round educational and support programs to at-risk children, youth, and families. Through our Camp Laurel and Camp Mulberry resident programs, life enhancement workshops, support groups, collaborations and various year round support programs, The Laurel Foundation is a powerful antidote to the challenges that at-risk youth face (populations served are youth affected by HIV/AIDS, transgender and gender diverse youth, and other at-risk youth populations). Our programs empower each participant to overcome the adversities they face and embrace their most authentic selves.
