1 in 5
That is how many students in the Greater Cleveland area try to take their life every year - 1 in 5.
Why? They are hurting. They're being bullied at school. They feel like no one understands them. They may not have positive role models to speak life into them. They don't know what it feels like to have true love, support, and grace surrounding them.
This is why we are in Countdown to Construction.
We are building a multipurpose community center for these children and their families.
YOU can help us serve so many more.
Because WE believe in every child's brilliance and capabilities
YOU can provide:
- A multi-purpose community center
- A STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) high school
- A plant-based café to employ youth
- A children's worship and play space
YOU can prepare students for computer science jobs – thru a technical curriculum and certification in partnership with the local community college.
YOU can provide 500+ children with a safe and loving place to play, learn, and grow.
We already have over $200,000 raised and another $70,000 pledged because of you. We need to raise another $250,000 to start the renovations with our goal to raise $100,000 by the end of the year. We already raised over $15,000 in the first 6 weeks of our campaign! Join us in our Countdown to Construction campaign to help build our multi-purpose community center and school!
