The Change is just that


in the way things are done.

This includes the way we interact with

each other.

"This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” 
Joshua 1:9
Years ago it was mainly the lower income families whose children came home to an empty house. Currently it is families from all walks of life.  With today’s increase of single parent households, families where both parents work, and the lack of accessible and affordable entertainment alternatives for our youth, we inadvertently open up many opportunities for even the “best” teens to experiment with unhealthy activities.  

​I have worked with youth in many capacities throughout my life. My heart is dedicated to being there for them. They will ultimately decide for themselves what type of person they will become. The rest of the world is influencing them on a regular basis. If we expose them to all the different options that are out there when faced with different scenarios, they stand a much better chance of making good decisions.

We cannot think for them, but we can teach them all the things to consider when thinking for themselves.

Improving the community through our youth.
