Donations and Volunteers Give Teens a Remodeled Group Home!

A while back we shared with you that the teens in one of our Orange County group homes would be getting a home makeover, thanks to Michael Sullivan and Associates Law Firm and Impressions Contracting. The renovation has been completed, and it looks fantastic! The updated home now provides a fresh, productive, home-like environment for our kids to live in.

It’s quite encouraging to have a clean, refreshed space to live in. Thank you to our very generous donors for making impactful differences in our kids’ lives!

Inland Empire Teens Enjoy New Activities—and New Opportunities for Growth

Inland Empire Teens Enjoy New Activities—and New Opportunities for Growth

Every day, at-risk kids and teens get the support they need through counseling, safety, and more…because of your support. New activities can play a part in healing, as well—and some of our group home teens have been tapping into their creative side by writing and putting together their own newsletter, The Olive Crest Press. The articles share their learning adventures—as well as some insights they have gathered along the way.

One young man wrote about a mountain trip, saying, “The reason I went to this place was not because of how it looked, or if there were girls there…I went up there to meet God, to allow Him to find me. I was lucky to have the opportunity to go up to that mountain….He did find me.”

Another shared an experience on a boat trip: “The journey back is never a disappointment, but rather a lesson in disguise and everybody for one reason or another seems to understand that at the end.…The crazy thing is even though we’re going to do the same thing next month, the experience is gonna be totally different. That’s because sailors adjust their sails.”

These experiences and the opportunities for growth that they offer would not be possible without your support. Thank you!
