Hosea Youth Services brings together civic and faith based ministries committed to serving young people particularly the homeless and disenfranchised. Hosea Youth Services provides food, laundry, showers, clothing, and shelter. Referral and casework assistance includes finding work, housing, educational and medical resources.
At Hosea we serve over 8,000 meals a year, provide 1,500 nights of shelter care and provide hundreds of street kids a place to shower, do laundry, obtain clothes, bus tokens, referral and just rest… in a safe place! While there are success stories around jobs, housing, medical care and education we like to think every meal served and every night of hospitality is a success if done motivated by love and with joy. All of this is possible because of the generosity and time of volunteers and donors who actively contribute to make this possible.
“I lead them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.” – Hosea 11:4
We support Hosea through preparing meals, cleaning, service projects, and financial assistance.
For $35 a month (from our youth offerings), we get to reach out a helping hand to Sunday Akello.
As a child sponsor, we are connected with one special child who will know our name, write to us and feel our tender love and prayers. Our monthly sponsorship gift will provide Sunday and her family with things such as:
Rapha House exists to love, rescue, and heal children who have been rescued out of slavery and sexual exploitation. Operating as a 501(c)3, Rapha House begin in 2003 to permeate cultures with love that heals and leads to restoration. RH does this by providing safehomes and aftercare programs for youth girls who have been rescued out of slavery and exploitative situations. All RH homes are currently located in Southeast Asia, with the goal of expanding globally.
Slavery still exists in every culture. RH is constantly partnering with advocates in an effort to build communities that extend unconditional love, physical rescue, and transformational healing.
We support Rapha House by raising awareness, through education about the issues involved, and through financial support. We give an average of $75 a month from our youth offerings.
