At-Risk Children & Teens

Community Hope

Tutor and mentor K – 5th grade students from Raleigh Gardens and Casa Del Sol during the school year on Mondays and Wednesdays at 4:30 and 5:30 PM for one hour each. Community Hope does not meet during December and summer break. 

Youth Night Basketball

Serve the young men of Raleigh Gardens every Wednesday evening from 7 – 9 PM through basketball and Bible study.

Raleigh Gardens Summer Read & Feed

During the summer, we reach out to our neighbors at Raleigh Gardens with a Read & Feed program. Read one-on-one with a child, then we prepare and serve lunch to the children.

Raleigh Dream Center

The Raleigh Dream Center partners with local churches to provide an outreach component to do local missions. They run many outreaches to communities that are in great need. You can join in with an Adopt-A-Block, Advocacy Ministry, Bible Study, Homeless Outreach, KidzJam, or Summer Reading Program. Everything that they do is intended to build relationships and trust that will lead to gospel conversations and to help people to dream again about what God has planned for their future.


Presents Of Peace

Each year we help the YMCA provide a Christmas shopping experience for families in their subsidized programs. Through Presents of Peace, we partner with families in our community to make the gift giving tradition at Christmas special for everyone. At the Presents of Peace Shopping Celebration qualifying families can come to the Y and shop for toys, clothing, and books and pay as little as 10% of the original purchase price.*  

There are two ways to volunteer:

  1. Donate a gift.
  2. Volunteer to help decorate, stock and display gifts, help families shop and wrap presents.
