First floor of the Youth Development Center
That Neighborhood Youth Development Center
A 2000 square foot facility has been purchased to expand our after-school program for MS and HS students from 2 days a week to 5 days a week by creating a gang-free, violence-free space for youth to "hang out" and reach their educational and vocational goals.
We can also create a better learning environment for our middle school ministry by giving them a space that will allow for more activity-based learning
An Additional 2000 square feet building will be used for:
Provide a living space for interns
Provide a small laundry space for our regular attendees
Add showers to our facility for short-term mission groups
Provide meeting rooms for adult programs.
The Youth Development Center is almost completely renovated! We will need an additional $10,000 to complete the project. Please check out the Youth Development Center page for more information.

If you were to spend any time in our neighborhood you would notice that there are a lot of people who don't work. From the outside, you might be saying to yourself, "They just need to get a job!" The only problem with that thinking is that for many our neighbor they have never been taught employment life skills. This coming year we will be renovating and opening up a working business that will not only teach some of our neighbor's much-needed employment life skills, but we will be making quality products out of re-purposed wooden pallets. These products will be sold in and around Toledo and the surrounding area. All of the profits will go right back into the neighborhood. In order for this to be a success, we will need lots of volunteers to help with various renovation projects. Once we are finished we will be needing used wooden pallets on a regular basis.
