WHAT WE DO

We're on a 20 year journey with a child and their family...


CHILDREN LIVING IN TORONTO COMMUNITY HOUSING NEIGHBOURHOODS WANT WHAT ANY KID WANTS...

To be known, accepted and valued.

To become just like their role models.

To dream.

They're up against some tough realities...

  • material poverty
  • lack of resources
  • destructive cycles
  • broken families
  • lure of drugs
  • threat of violence

Which can make them feel unworthy, defeated, angry, hopeless.

BUT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE HOPE,

AND EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO KNOW JESUS-

THE AUTHOR OF HOPE ITSELF.

THE LEADERSHIP PATHWAY

Reach A Child

Children age 5-14 are nurtured in a safe environment at After School Program and seasonal camps.

Raise A Leader

High school aged youth are coached in leadership by focusing on academic, social and spiritual growth.

Restore Community

Young adults are released to multiply the impact in their communities.

We reach out to children at a young age, form meaningful relationships with their family,

and raise them into young leaders by focusing on academic, social and spiritual growth.

With support, young adults are launched on a college and career path to restore their communities.


WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE...

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM & SEASONAL CAMPS

Camp is a safe place to come. Children get help with homework, eat healthy snacks, play games and hang out. Our goal is growth in spiritual awareness, academic achievement and respect for self and others.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

High school aged youth are hired to work at camp as StreetLeaders.  StreetLeaders are trained to lead, coached to serve and required to try their best. We also help youth build resumes, apply for school and navigate their teenaged years. Our goal is discipleship and holistic maturity.

MULTIPLYING IMPACT

Young adults stay connected though 2-way mentorship; we support their launch into the world, and encourage them to pour back into those coming up behind. Our goal is strong foundations in church connection, college and career path and community leadership.


CHURCH PARTNERSHIP &

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

These pieces underscore the entire 20 year journey, acting like glue that holds it together.

We partner with local churches to incorporate families into the body of Christ.

We engage in community life alongside stakeholders and providers to share resources.


COMMUNITY TEAMS

WE WORK IN TEAMS OF MISSIONARIES, VOLUNTEERS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS.
