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.
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.
We work with school counselors to provide desperately needed mental wellness and mentoring relationships, restoring a sense of self and needed community.
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.
Youth who are homeless or unable to safely remain in their homes can count on us to provide safe, comfortable, effective services and keep them out of the child welfare system.
Studies show that 50% of adolescents aging out of foster care and juvenile justice systems will be homeless within six months because they are unprepared to live independently and have limited education and no social support. We want to break this cycle of homelessness through the comprehensive services we offer.
The bravery to acknowledge those in pain, the fortitude to empathize with the sorrow of others, and the audacity to take action when others hesitate.Possessing the courage to recognize and acknowledge those who are suffering is a vital step in offering support and understanding. Having the strength to genuinely feel and share the sadness experienced by others enables us to connect on a deeper level, fostering empathy and compassion. Furthermore, demonstrating the determination to act when others remain passive allows us to become agents of positive change, making a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most, and ultimately contributing to a more caring and connected world.
To break the cycle of homelessness.To provide shelter and safety to the vulnerable and abandoned.To help youth live up to their potential, and see the potential inside themselves.

Ariana lost her father and was in a terribly abusive situation with her stepmother.
Whether it was food, gift cards, baskets, or goodie bags, he said it made him feel special. It meant the world just knowing someone out there cares for him. He is very thankful for One Way Love and the way they always made him feel like he wasn't alone.
His family financial insecurity took away stability in the things most take for granted: a place to call home and food on the table. So many times Denzel made a choice no child should have to make, choosing to go hungry so that his mother could have something to eat.
