We are both a mentoring program and home!
We empower children and their families to become healthy and productive members of our community. We create nationwide awareness of the needs of at-risk youth. We accomplish our mission by matching children with Christian mentors and providing a safe and structured home environment for boys in our residential program.
We serve at-risk youth.
The kids we serve represent all races and include both boys and girls. All of the children we serve come from single-parent homes; usually the kids in our program grow up fatherless. The needs and risk factors associated with fatherless children are staggering.
Why does Youth Horizons exist?
Youth Horizons exists because God is the defender of the fatherless. He has asked us to be involved in His work caring for the fatherless and motherless in Wichita. The staff members of Youth Horizons mobilize the church to help meet the needs of these children in Sedgwick county through our mentoring and residential programs.
