The Problem

Increasing numbers of young men are experiencing homelessness in our community. Many are living on the streets because of disabilities, poor parenting, absentee fathers – others have simply aged out of foster care.

Before we started the David Development Program in 2016, nearly 300 young men between the ages of 18 and 26 found refuge at our emergency shelter. To truly restore their lives, they needed resources that would change the course of their futures.

 

The Solution

Our David Development Program has been incredibly successful in helping young men become productive members of society. Each year, 40 young men in this program receive the help and spiritual guidance they need to turn their lives around. By the end of last year, every single one of the young men in this program were employed or offered vocational training – and half of them have chosen to pursue additional job training or academic studies to help them succeed.

With your help we can teach these young men about God’s love and His plan for them. It will change the course of their futures by giving them hope.


Give them hope and a new life

Your support of our Changing Futures Campaign today will strengthen and expand our David Development Program, which has proven to be a tremendous success. In just six months, young men:

  • Find hope in Jesus
  • Set employment and education goals
  • Learn basic financial skills
  • Restore relationships with their families
  • Gain critical life-skills

During this three-part program, homeless young men between the ages of 18-26 receive the support, training, and education they need to become productive members of society. The 50 percent of men in the program who are already fathers also learn how to meet the needs of their children, so that future generations continue to break the cycle of homelessness.

Help change the future of a young man today!

“We come to the program defeated. In my case, staff lifted me up. They listened. They helped me do what I couldn’t do on my own … discover God’s plan for me.” —Eric, 25

“They taught me to think more about the decisions I make in life, to be more humble, and how to change the way I approach people – to show them more respect. They helped me become a man.” —Shaun, 23
