Abuse, neglect, starvation- just a few of the many harsh realities that children in our community face. As residents and professionals of West Des Moines, we naturally adopt the false assumption these horrors aren’t happening if we cannot see them. Unfortunately, the classrooms our kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews report to each day are a place of relief for some of their peers. Children in our community need help. The West Des Moines Leadership Academy has identified the organization that will be the answer for children in our community. Wildwood Hills Ranch
provides at risk youth a safe space to be carefree- to be a kid. They provide a community where these children are protected, where they are heard, where they can find a sense of belonging.The West Des Moines Leadership Academy Class of 2018 has committed to raising $50,000 to fund Wildwood Hills in their commitment to send 20 students from West Des Moines schools to camp this summer and the nine summers to follow should we reach our monetary goal!
