WHO WE ARE?
Since 2007 we have been reaching at-risk youth in Oakland by implementing creative and effective faith-based programs. We are instilling christian values in youth and children which become their foundation to impact them to take courage and power to be a point of light in their communities, providing hope and relief to other youth within Oakland.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
Almost 95% of Oakland churches do not have a children/youth worker or programs that would effectively reduce the violent trends being committed among youth. Inner city churches are overwhelmed by their communities’ needs and hurts, and in most cases do not have the resources to offer youth and children an effective life changing program.
points of light
Christmas outreach 2022
Our 2022 Christmas in Oakland was a time were over 2,000 people came to celebrate the birth of Jesus and feel His love through.
2022 Back to school party
Our Back to School party had water slides, food, raffles, a school supply, and free haircuts for kids. The Oakland Firefighters were present, allowing kids to take pictures in the fire truck, and Chick Fil A gave kids sandwiches. While all of this fun happened, we took 15 minutes to remind the attendees the Lord Jesus Christ loves them.
Grad Bash on Wheels 2022
In partnership with the Oakland Police Department Ok program, we put together a list of graduating students and embarked on a car parade being escorted by Oakland Police to the front of the students’ homes. It was a joyous occasion filled with sirens, cars honking, and people from the neighborhood joining the celebration of one of the greatest achievements yet for each student.
