A message from Ben:

Our goal is to provide an atmosphere where youth feel welcome with a sense of belonging and safety. Through engaging activities, camping trips, and lots of food, we aim to build lasting friendships between caring adults and the youth in our communities. It is our hope that through these relationships, our youth will be better equipped to handle the struggles they are facing on a daily basis.
