Impact Youth

Awaken Our Youth to Dream Again:

Our partners are the heroes, the key to inspiring our youth to be fearless. Join us in helping our youth rise up from the shattering effects of trauma to realize their true value and potential. It takes courage to persevere through life’s deepest pains and only the brave stand with them, giving sacrificially to make a difference.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:1-4
