Brightening a Beacon of Hope

The mandate of the SEIA Signature Fund for Giving is to help empower nonprofits which focus on important children’s causes and by supporting the local youth who will be tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. As part of that effort, we are proud to once again be able to step up and make a major contribution as the 2023 Title Sponsor for Second Story’s annual ‘Beacon of Hope’ fundraiser.

For more than 50 years, Second Story has been transforming the lives of at-risk youths and their families across Northern Virginia by providing a safe haven and opportunities to grow and thrive. From a short-term place to stay for youth in crisis, to long-term housing and life skills support, individual and family counseling, and assistance with basic needs—the organization is committed to helping youth achieve their goals and work toward self-sufficiency; ultimately breaking the cycle of homelessness, abuse, and poverty.

Since 2017, our Tyson’s office team has taken a hands-on, active role in supporting the work of this invaluable local organization—both financially and through investing their personal time to help educate teens and young mothers on the importance of financial literacy.

We’re thrilled and honored to continue our association with the wonderful work going on every day at Second Story.

If you have any questions regarding our fund or how to participate, we invite you to contact Hayley Wood Bates at 310-712-2323 or
