HBK Engineering and Strive Employee Resource Group hosted girls from the Naperville and Downers Grove ChildServ group homes on Thursday, February 20 in a National Engineering Week Girl Day event. The evening included a presentation about successful women engineers and discussions led by the Strive board members on goal setting, healthy lifestyle and the profession of engineering. Through HBK employee fundraising, the girls received individual toiletry kits with essentials needed to build a strong foundation for the best possible life.
ChildServ's group homes provide safe, supportive places for youth ages 12-19 who have suffered from trauma. These teens live in a home environment, receive quality therapy and the encouragement they need to complete high school so that they can become empowered adults.
