The Transitional Living program at Hillcrest helps homeless emerging teens make a better transition to young adulthood.  At Hillcrest, the Transitional Living Center provides transitional students with an outstanding efficiency apartment and program training with loving care support.  Most importantly, those students receive loving mentorship and supervision from amazing Christian leaders, Baron and Regena Way!

Recently, one of the students expressed a tearful thank you with the Ways' that highlights the important value this ministry brings to these students.  
"I just want to thank you for being in my life!  You have really impacted me!  You believed in me when no else did.  I've never had a father figure in my life.  You showed me what a father is and can be .  Even when I had a mom, I felt like she cared about my sibling more than me. You gave me motherly love.  So, thank you!"
Approximately 20,000 foster students age out of the system annually.  God loves every one of them!  He promises "a hope and a future" for each one. (Jeremiah 29:11)  This is why we have a Transitional Living program!  Furthermore, it is why we need supporting partners of this ministry!  Thank you for loving vulnerable youth through COMPACT!

We asked and YOU answered.  The week of June, we were able to send 9 our of youth to camp thanks to your generous support.  Camp is a tremendous opportunity for our students to set aside a time, remove distractions, and focus on time with God.  

One of our staff members, Sarah, said, "Three of the girls asked to be prayed over to overcome their depression and anxiety because of past abuse. And two of our girls responded to the salvation altar call!"  

We still have some kids who are preparing for camp in July and there is still an opportunity for you to help! The cost per camper is $150.  

Can you  help send one  student to camp this summer?
