As 2017 comes to a close, we reflect and think how busy we were but also how satisfying it is to know that we have helped even one youth who is determined to make his or her way in the world. In 2017 we had some very successful events and some not so successful ones but all in all we feel God is expecting us to persevere. As we begin 2018, we have big hopes and dreams, not only to continue to assist youths leaving foster care, but making our vision for YTIA become a reality: the purchase of the property for "The Dorm". Pray for us as we continue to grow.
