Build With Us
We’re raising $850,000 to help young people (13-24) off the streets – we aim to literally put the floor beneath their feet and help them work toward a more hopeful future through better todays.
FCCB invites all who share our care and concern for youth experiencing homelessness to join us in this venture. We welcome your partnership in transforming the church’s ground floor into a safe, confidential and caring space for youth in need of basic and the more skilled care from the professionals at Northwest Youth Services.
Your gift can make a critical difference today, tomorrow and for generations to come. In addition to access to services, safety, and counseling in The Ground Floor, youth will find dignity, showers, supplies, and camaraderie to support their hopes for a better future.
