THE STORY:

Thank you for taking time to learn more about us!

2016 has been a flourishing year for 3:11 and we look forward to what is to come in 2017.  

We are in the process of tripling our capacity to serve youth. Yes, you heard correctly. We are soon going to soon be able to serve 3x as many youth as before, but cannot do so without your help! Join with 3:11 to develop safe, affordable housing for youth who are experiencing homelessness and partner in their transition to healthy interdependence.

Since 2012, 3:11 Youth Housing has been operating out of one home. The tremendous growth in the lives of all 8 youth that we have been able to serve from this house is provding the backbone for the growth of our family. From GED completion to college enrollment, full-time employment to job and pay raises, and from driver's licenses to savings accounts these youth have found a place to call home and thrive. This growth in their lives fulfills our mission of partnering with young people in their transition to healthy interdependence.

Early in 2016 we took the opportunity to purchase two new homes. After some renovations, our second home is opening it's doors in Mid-November for youth, while the third home is still in the process of rennovation. Additionally, during this time we have aquired new office space for 3:11 Youth Housing to partner with the community and provide organizational support to a new level. To date we have had the capacity to house 4 youth in our first home, however, once all homes are operational we will be able to serve 12 youth at one time. We look forward to continuing to impact youth in these new homes as we have in the first house.

Unfortunately, 12 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 raising funds to increase our capacity and programming to serve more youth.

Will you join us?
