BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A local non-profit organization that focuses on helping at-risk youth and teens in and around south Louisiana is kicking off a fundraiser on March 11 at 7 p.m.

The goal is to raise money for those most affected in the community by violence, namely the youth.

This will be the Baton Rouge based organization’s first fundraiser event.

According to Truce, the funds raised will help to support many of the services provided to the kids. Some of those services include employment assistance, mental health services, after-school programs, educational assistance, recreational activities, substance abuse treatment, family services, plus more.
