Testimonials of Lives Changed

“I was strung out in a mental hospital. I had no where to go but to Jesus
and thank the Lord for this place called Youth-Reach Gulf Coast. It was the paradise – literally – that I was hoping for.”

Jackson Bentley, Program Graduate

“Youth Reach took me in at this dark, dark time in my life and they loved me.
They taught me how to be a son of God and they taught me how to walk out sonship as a son of God.”

Hunter Ricks, Program Graduate

Healing Past Wounds & Restoring Families

Facilitated by experienced and respected counselors, Youth-Reach Gulf Coast is a faith-based, long-term program intended to heal past wounds, break generational curses, and restore families. Young men ages 18-22 receive intensive counseling and support for developing character, responsibility, and a strong work ethic on our 81-acre campus in rural Summerdale, Alabama.

The healing that occurs reaches far beyond the lives of the residents. Families are restored and as these young men grow and become husbands and fathers, their wives and children also benefit from the important lessons these young men learned while at Youth-Reach Gulf Coast. Not only do we facilitate emotional healing and healthy relationships, but practical skills for daily living as well, such as gardening, home care, auto maintenance and carpentry.
