Dear friends,

I work in a local church community that is nestled in an area where many families are struggling to get by. Because they do not have the finances or resources that most have, their kids are struggling in many areas of their life including academics, social, and more. Many of these teenagers are dealing with depression, have low self confidence, feel hopeless, and truly believe that their life is not worth living.

At our church I provide some group counseling for these kids but I am only one person and over the last twelve months I have seen a significant rise in more of our youth being lost and surrounded by difficult situations. I am seeing good kids turn to drugs, violence, gangs, stealing, and more where many of them have begun a downward spiral and it could lead to some ending up in prison.

For those of you who do not know, many of our incarcerated citizens all started off as good people who just lost their way because they were not given a chance to live a healthy and positive life. Ask any inmate and they will all tell you that if given the opportunity, they would have chosen a different life for themselves.

I want to raise some money so that I can bring in some outside help and get these youngsters access to ongoing teen therapy and youth life coaching so they can get the mental health support they need. I have partnered with the Parenting Teenagers Academy who have agreed to offer us their services at half the cost.

This is where you come in!

I want to raise $5000 so we can get these kids help on an ongoing basis. I want to create an environment at our church where these kids can come to every day after school and get the support they need so that they don't put their energies into destructive behaviors. Our mission is to teach them tools they can use in life so that not only can they contribute to society in a meaningful way, but that they don’t become a tax burden to us hard working citizens.
So please join my cause and support us with whatever you can. Every dollar will truly mean a lot and help us along this journey!
