Give the Gift of a New Beginning.

The Advocate Program is our monthly giving project that directly supports our youth empowerment center. Those who give at least $10 per month will join our Advocate network and help us provide personal development programs to local youth and families. This is an incredible way to invest directly into the lives of those we serve.
