CMS Joins Beacon of Hope Society
CMS remains committed to the community and finding ways to continuously make the greatest impact with our charitable donations. This year, CMS joined the Beacon of Hope Society at Second Story. The Beacon of Hope Society is comprised of a close circle of supporters, dedicated to the longevity of Second Story’s programs and the endurance of their mission.
The programs at Second Story provide safe havens and opportunities to grow and thrive to children, youth, and their families. Second Story works throughout the Northern VA area. You may have driven past one of the many locations embedded within the community. One noticeable building in Tysons Corner is the “house with the purple door”, a home for teens in crisis. Second Story also has programs for young mothers and homeless youth, family resources, and community centers. Each program shares a core goal: to offer safety and opportunities at critical moments to youth in crisis. Second Story started operating its first program in 1972 for runaway and homeless youth and have grown to meet the needs of youth in our community ever since. They have served tens of thousands of young people.
