BENEFITING: 3-11 YOUTH HOUSING

THE STORY:

We are using Crowdrise to fund our efforts in reducing the number of youth experiencing homelessness in the Grand Rapids area. We are working to raise funds to expand our capacity to serve more youth. 

3:11 has a mission of developing safe, affordable housing for youth who are homeless and partnering in their transition to healthy interdependence. 

We currently have the capacity to house 4 youth in our home. We have seen tremendous growth in the lives of all the youth we have had the privilege of working with, from GED completion to college enrollment, from full-time employment to job and pay raises, from driver's licenses to savings accounts. This growth and change in the lives of youth fulfills our mission of partnering with young people in their transition to healthy interdependence.  

Unfortunately, 4 youth is a small number compared to the amount of youth experiencing homelessness in Grand Rapids and Kent County. According to recent counts, over 2,000 young people experience homelessness in Grand Rapids in any given year. So, while we are making an impact in the lives of the youth in our home, there is much more to do. Here's where you come in. You may know some of this or you may know none of it. You may have supported us over the past few years; praying for us and walking with us, or this may be the first time you're hearing of this incredible need.

As we move towards this next step in our journey, we are using Crowdrise to raise funds and raise awareness. Will you join us?
