Our Mission   

Be bearers of the Good News by providing Christian mentoring to youth in a safe, positive, interesting environment which bridges the gap between the end of the school day and the end of parents’ work days and helps youth learn:

There is a God who loves them so much that He sent His only Son to save them from their sins;

Each life is precious to God and has value and purpose;

God gave each of us gifts and talents to be developed, appreciated and used in conjunction with His wonderful plan for our lives;

Leadership skills;

Respect for themselves and for others;

Practical life skills and academic tutoring to help them become independent, flourishing, employed adults.

Our Vision
To bring help and hope to children and their families by creating a model of The Shepherd’s Place that can be replicated and planted in cities within the United States and around the world.

Our Values

Galatians 5:22-23 tells us, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the result of the Holy Spirit's presence in the life of a Christian:

Love – Seeks the highest good of others.

Joy – Gladness that is not based on circumstances.

Peace -  Contentment, unity between people.

Patience -  Slow to speak and slow to anger.

Kindness – Merciful, sweet and tender.

Goodness – Generous and open hearted.

Self-control – Behaving well.
