Story of the Waymaker: Years ago, the Young Center had the honor of serving a girl from West Africa. When she was successfully released from custody, settled in, and enrolled in high school, she sent a letter to her Child Advocate, thanking her for being her Waymaker. We love that word. Today, as many children continue to be separated from their families at the border and those who arrive on their own are at risk of being deported to danger, we need more Waymakers than ever.
