Help us let the marginalized in our community know that they are seen + loved + valued

Every teen we encounter has the weight of the world on their shoulders and a story that seems unbearable.  Youth who are homeless or unable to safely remain in their homes can count on one way love to provide safe, comfortable, effective services. Learn more

Our mission

To live a life of compassion, to see the connection between ourselves and those who are hurting and suffering. It’s not a burden; it’s a fire within us to make a difference.

Our goals

To be the people that youth can count on when everyone else has let them down.

  • Safe housing

    Most of our teens are couch surfers; some live in parks, sheds, or anywhere they can find shelter. They’re all in school desiring better lives for themselves.

  • LIFE ESSENTIALS + EDUCATION SUPPLIES

    It's hard to think about school when you don't have the basics to live. We meet those needs all year through gift cards, food, clothing, and filled backpacks.

  • MENTAL HEALTH + MENTORING PROGRAMS

    We work with school counselors to provide desperately needed mental wellness and mentoring relationships, restoring a sense of self and needed community.

  • SINGLE PARENT SUPPORT

    Many single parents are struggling to make ends meet and to do the best they can for their kids. We're helping with food insecurity and utility assistance.

What can you do to help?

SHARE THE THINGS THAT matter

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
-Thomas Merton
