On Friday, Outback Steakhouse did their part to help homeless teens.

The restaurant held a luncheon fundraiser for Charis Ranch.

The $40 steak plates will go towards a program for homeless teens in the Basin.

Charis Ranch says it's their mission to build a home for 17-year-old's who have been abandoned and are struggling to survive.

"We do have some homeless teens that are caught in this really weird age---the age of 17 where the state says that they are legal adults but they are still a minor till they're 18. Parents that have just abandoned them because the state does allow emancipation and things like that," Bella Lucero with Charis Ranch, said.

If you weren't able to make it out to the luncheon on Friday, you can still donate.
