Testimonials of Lives Changed

“I believe that the people God has placed here at Youth-Reach really care and want to know about your story, hurts and heart.
Never have I felt more at home in my life. This is what God designs family to be.

Andy, Program Graduate, 2020

“The YRGC community meant so much to me. It’s one you can’t really find anywhere else and it was a stepping stone
to where I am today: working hard with a promising career, painting, discipled, and in community.”

Blaine, Program Graduate, 2019

Healing Past Wounds & Restoring Families

Facilitated by experienced and respected counselors, Youth-Reach Gulf Coast is a faith-based, long-term home 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.

The Coming Season

Five years ago, with the guidance of our Board of Directors, we entered a ten-year succession plan. We would be foolish and even negligent to allow what the Lord has built to fall just because we failed to plan, so we have been very proactive to look to the future, pray, and seek out the Lord’s provision for the next season.
