Young Life Europe DACH Region
Young Life thinks the world of kids. We are an organization for adolescents because we believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life leaders are caring adults who enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them – fun, adventure, friendship, and a sense of significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we believe matters most of all – the truth about God and His love for them. We’ve been in the kid business since 1941 and we have no plans to slow down. The Young Life Europe DACH region includes Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. Funding this group helps bring the news of Christ to adolescents in these countries.

Young Life is a Christian outreach ministry that works alongside the church to reach kids at local high schools, middle schools, and kids with special needs. Young Life is completely locally supported, counting on businesses and locals to give personally in support of our ministry. In Aledo, we are impacting kids at Aledo High School and kids with special needs all across Parker County. Young Life builds relationships with kids by going to where they are: high school lunches, practices, sporting events, pep rally’s, etc. We believe that kids will care about what we know only when they know that we care. Our goal is to hope to be like the friends of the paralytic in Mark 2, who bring their unsuspecting friend to the feet of Jesus so that he can experience His love. We hope to live out John 13:35, “They (high schoolers) will know you are my disciples by your love”.

The NET is a non-profit in Fort Worth that believes in a solution to poverty that is more than material. We exist to empower our city to restore dignity to people in poverty through community and relationships. We serve three communities in poverty in Fort Worth: the homeless, women affected by the sex industry, as well as low-income youth. The link between these programs is our goal to create a community filled with dignity and empowerment among the people we serve. Poverty isn’t just a lack of material things, it is so much more than that! Research shows that the poor themselves tend to describe their condition in psychological and social terms such as shame, isolation, inferiority, humiliation, fear, hopelessness, and depression. While needs for clothing, food, and shelter do exist, these are simply symptoms of poverty, not the root cause. That’s why The NET is all about empowering our community to build relationships with people in poverty! As individuals begin to understand their inherent dignity and worth, feelings of shame, isolation, and inferiority are replaced by connection, confidence, and hope! This leads our friends to participate in their own personal success and empowers them to rise out of poverty. Not only restores their lives but gives them the WORTH and dignity that every human deserves.

HOPE Farm is a leadership program guiding at-risk boys to become Christ-centered men of integrity. HOPE Farm was incorporated in 1990 to Help Other People Excel. Former police officer Gary Randle and former Department of Public Safety criminal investigator, Noble Crawford, Jr., founded HOPE Farm. While in law enforcement, Officer Randle observed that 80% of the young men populating the state prisons were African-American. The two men shared a vision to not just clean up the streets, but also to minister to fatherless boys in the inner-city. They also visioned to design a leadership program that would steer them away from the negative influences that draw so many into lives of crime and subsequent poverty. A grant from the Sid Richardson Foundation in 1997 provided the funds to start then endeavor. Two “crack houses” located on the south side of Fort Worth in the Morningside community were purchased from the funds. A team of hard-working community volunteers stepped in. Soon, the abandoned properties were turned into a safe place to operate an afterschool leadership program for fatherless boys ages 5 to 18. Gary and Noble worked closely with Morningside Elementary School to grow their program. By word of mouth, the program has successfully served the community for over 25 years. Today, HOPE Farm covers the entire 11 acres of the very same block. In 2010, they opened a second location west of downtown Fort Worth in the Como community. HOPE Farm is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and led by a staff of 18 individuals. Currently, 59 boys are enrolled in the after-school leadership program at the Morningside campus. 14 are enrolled at the Como campus. 98% of the boys attending the Morningside location are African-American and 100% at the Como location. 55% of the families at HOPE Farm are government dependent. Most are one-income households, under $30,000, with four to five dependents.
