"Our programs focus on the needs of youth and families today. At-risk families, a rapidly growing segment of our population, have special needs. They require special programs that build confidence, help them to develop positive relationships, and instill values that will help them make good decisions. We are helping one family at a time, keeping children and families from coming unraveled by bringing them the love and grace of Jesus Christ."
