There are people on the streets for many different reasons: either due to unexpected life interruptions, addictions, or inability to cope, and they want something different, they want change. That's where we come in. Our Life Skills Training Center offers a way for change, a true hand up. We take in people and help them to find the skills that they need (not just to make money but social interaction as well), a commitment to restore the WHOLE person. No one is turned away, we believe everyone deserves an opportunity to get "BACK TO LIFE".
It costs approximately $35,000 monthly to do what we do and it all comes from concerned and caring people who really want to make a difference. We do not have a congregation of wealthy people (95% of our church members are homeless) nor do we receive any government funding. We do, however, have a supporter who has a friend that has gone through the program and, because of the dramatic change he saw in him, has now set in place a $12,000 monthly grant matching opportunity. Help us to reach our monthly operating budget and help others "BACK TO LIFE".
