We challenge teens to complete our NEW homeless awareness program this summer! It's an opportunity to build Compassion for those who are homeless or extremely poor.
You will literally wear someone else's shoes and walk through the life of poverty: visiting multiple local shelters, outreaches, and human service personnel while having challenging conversations, such as, "Have you seen good place to sleep for the night yet?" This is a great youth group day program or a single day's activity in a week-long summer camp schedule.
"Seeing the people, He felt Compassion for them..."

"The walk really opened our eyes to what those in need have to deal with on a daily basis in Virginia Beach. Our students got to see with their own eyes the hurt, pain, and suffering that our fellow man has to endure just to get a bite to eat and a comfortable place to sleep. We also enjoyed hearing the stories of these people and stepping into their lives as God works in our hearts to help bring Compassion and change to those in need."
