LifeSource Adventist Fellowship commits to help homeless young people
LifeSource Adventist Fellowship has been and continues to be committed to serving those in their community. One of the projects they are involved in is Urban Peak, an organization committed to helping homeless young people in Denver. It is estimated that 921 young people, ages 13–24, are homeless each night in Denver.
Pastor Gale Hendrick of LifeSource shares below about the Urban Peak project to learn how you might get involved, too.
According to the 2013 Point-In-Time Survey, conducted by the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI), there are approximately 921 youth between the ages 13 to 24 on the streets in Denver on any given night.
This number of youth would fill LifeSource Adventist Fellowship’s worship Center one-and-a-half times.
Since 2006, LifeSource Adventist Fellowship has supported the work of Urban Peak in helping to provide services for youth experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.
Corporately, LifeSource Adventist Fellowship has provided four to five meals a month for the last seven years at Urban Peak’s Shelter — the only licensed shelter in Denver serving youth ages 15 up to age 21 who are experiencing homelessness.
Individually, members of LifeSource have employed youth who have completed Urban Peak’s Job Readiness Training.
Could you, your family, your small group or your congregations make a difference in the life of one of these 921 homeless youth?
