Ready To Get Involved

We knew God was changing and working in the lives of the kids at Freedom for Youth. What we didn't know was how He was going to change our hearts through serving... We feel blessed to be a part of Freedom and to be building relationships with leaders, volunteers, and youth for eternity.
