And that’s why I’m asking for help. The need is still there. We have new kids signing on and veteran kids on the verge of becoming our first adults to come out of this ministry… So many of them developing into fine young men and women, needing work, and training, and vision for their futures.
Some of our kids are in college now (no longer kids), the first in their family line to ever go. Some are already working full time, learning to self sustain and work hard for their future. Some of the new kids are just getting started with us and at their first week of camp ever as I write this. Our program has expanded in scope and impact, but the mission is still the same. It’s all about these kids. We love them and we will not stop advocating for them.
So what’s this desperate need you might ask… I’m glad you did ask… because I need your help with this one, and I need your help soon.
It’s a big need for us that we are looking to God to provide for through His people. We love these young future community leaders God is raising up for our city, and we want to see them flourish in their true identity in Christ. We invite you to join us, as we join Jesus, and unite to His heart to redeem and restore lives that have been devastated by generational poverty.
Coming into 2021 we have seen a lull in our monthly giving across the board and our program budget has taken a hit. While we grow in impact and post COVID needs, the resources to sustain us have simply not been coming in. Grants we thought for sure we would win have yet to even give us responses. A few key monthly donors facing their own financial challenges have scaled back or dropped off.
So I’m asking you… Would you invest in this vital summer program?
A gift of $3,000, $1000, $500, $200, $100, $50, $20 can add up quickly when we come together on behalf of our youth. Recurring donations of any amount help us sustain, plan and grow. Please prayerfully consider partnering with our team today so there can be no lack of resources for these immediate and ongoing needs.
