BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2013) - During their annual Advisory Council meeting in October 2012, on the heels of their successful International Women's Day event (in March 2012), clients of DeYoe Wealth Management requested another client event tied to an opportunity for community service. One member of the advisory council suggested writing "go get 'em in 2013" messages and offering a gift-card to each of the ACILSP participants.

In December 2012, DeYoe Wealth Management clients and staff met to hand write over 300 cards and by January 2013, they had collected enough gift cards so that each of the 300 participants in the Alameda County Independent Living Skills Program would receive some small support for educational materials, food, work clothes, etc. Many friends in the Berkeley community also participated.

Finally on February 27th, Jonathan and Nancy delivered the cards to the ACILSP and started a conversation about continuing to support their efforts by providing on-site financial literacy training in addition to everything the ACILSP already does for these kids. Jonathan said, "I have been so incredibly blessed in my own life, I really look forward to helping the ACILSP support kids who have had a tough start believe in themselves and reach towards their own successful independence."
