$1,000.00 raised ~ goal of: $5,000.00



George S. Yacoubian, Jr., SOAR's Founder and Executive Board Chairman, is running in the Philadelphia Half Marathon on November 18, 2023, to raise funds for the SOAR Transitional Centers. 

SOAR’s Transitional Centers (Gyumri and Yerevan) are residential settings for older teenage girls who have outgrown the traditional orphanage but who are not yet ready for independent living.  The residents go to college; cultivate a business; be enriched by SOAR’s academic programs; appreciate volunteerism; learn essential life skills, including home and money management; build self-nurturance and self-confidence; and prepare themselves for emotional, fiscal, and professional independence.
