Paul Church has been transforming the lives of young people experiencing homelessness since HOPE 4 Youth's doors opened in 2013. After the loss of his daughter, he wanted to "pay it forward" as she was working with autistic children. He was looking for some way to do this and found HOPE 4 Youth; it was meant to be. Every Tuesday and Thursday you'll find his friendly face at the Drop-In Center where he volunteers as a lead mentor. 

"I have been privileged to watch the center grow from nothing to the great organization we are today," said Paul, "I am honored to work as a lead at HOPE 4 Youth and have been privileged to see youth make great strides in their lives." He also had words of wisdom to share with the youth, "It always starts with one small step forward and continues from there."

Paul- On behalf of the young people, volunteers and staff at HOPE 4 Youth, we thank you for your commitment to HOPE 4 Youth and are honored to have you as part of our family.
