COVID-19 has caused us to close our building temporarily. However, our staff is still working virtually: motivating students to complete classroom, distributing food to families, and growing relationships by phones, Zoom calls, and texts. Our new PODCAST, Escape The Bubble, launched in April so you can listen from home or in the car!
Keep Escape and our students in your prayers…keep in mind that many home situations that were difficult before are even more difficult now, and they need relationships, resources, and the Gospel in their lives now more than ever!
To intervene in the lives of those who fall between the cracks of existing education, economic, family and religious resources and help them successfully navigate to a positive life experience through meaningful Christian relationships.
What We Do
In summary: Relationships, Opportunities, and Resources that matter for youth and their families who often fall through the cracks of society.
ASAP (Alternative Suspension Accountability Program) – Students who are suspended and expelled can complete their schoolwork at Escape while working towards peace, restoration, and personal growth. Volunteers are integral in working side-by-side with students.
Career Connections – We partner with local businesses, organizations, and donors to create part-time employment opportunities for 14-17 year old youth in the summer and beyond, extending to internships, workshops, and life learning.
