About Youth Horizons
To ensure young people thrive.
We are called and compelled by faith to elevate our children and young adults beyond their personal struggles so they grow into contributing members of our community.
We commit to this calling through our community mentoring program, our residential foster care services, and our youth advocacy collaborations.
We dedicate ourselves to serve youth in need of family resources, embrace them where they are, and equip them on their path to wholeness.
We continually seek to show and share the Gospel to point others to Christ. The Gospel saves us, defines us, restores us, and propels us in everything we do.
We advocate passionately for the well-being and transformation of the youth and families we serve by being engaged, consistent, and persistent through trials and triumphs.
We empower those we serve to embrace their God-given worth and potential by building intentional relationships centered on honesty, respect, humility, and compassion.
We pursue excellence in all that we do while maintaining an atmosphere that inspires confidence in our services through integrity, confidentiality, accountability, and transparency. We strive to always uphold research-based best practices.
We build strategic and creative partnerships in our community through local agencies, businesses, and churches that will holistically enhance the lives of the families we serve to achieve our mission. We believe collaboration is essential for the long-term success of those we serve and for the growth of the organization.
We are a Christian organization, and we believe:
- That Jesus is God in human form, he was born a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, was crucified because of our sin, and he rose from the dead.
- That the Bible is the authoritative word of God and it is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
- That all who receive Jesus Christ, by faith, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
- That the Church is the earthly manifestation of God’s love, family, and ministry.
Out of the above biblical truths naturally flows the ministry of Youth Horizons as we assist the local church in her ministry to children and families who may be lost, oppressed, or experiencing troubling circumstances.
After a Law Enforcement career, I wanted to continue to work with youth. Working at Youth Horizons has strengthened my faith and I’ve seen the love here for making a difference in kids’ lives. I am grateful to work at this great organization.”Jay Grayson
