Relationships, opportunities, and resources that matter for youth and their families.

What We Do

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.

Westside Boxing – Whether training for your first fight, or just for fun, our FREE fitness center is open Monday-Friday, 3-6pm.  We help kids “break down the barriers one punch at a time.”  Training is also offered through WestSide Boxing with certified trainers.

Upcoming Events:

November 1st – Spooktackular Lock-In from 9 pm to 8 am. Open to kids from 8th – 12th grades. Lip sync battles, games, music, movie marathon and tons of snacks throughout the night. $15 donation goes toward funding our Mexico Mission Trip in 2020.

November 23 – Book drive at the Holland Barnes & Noble. Proceeds from the days book sales will be donated to ESCAPE. Start your Christmas shopping early and support ESCAPE at the same time!

Our new music studio is now open.

In honor of TJ Wells, who loved music and dance, the TJ Wells Memorial Studio is now open. Do you want to learn to play guitar? Piano? Drums? Or maybe you want to learn about audio production or song writing. We now have the resources to help you! Stop by the office and pick up an application.

The Empowered Woman Teaching Series

One of God’s most beloved creations was formed to reflect His extraordinary love, beauty and wisdom and be filled with light for the whole world to see; He calls her a woman. This is why it is so important for us to know our value and worth. We were not created to walk under the feet of the enemy or man but to walk side by side with our Creator.
This is a FREE 12-week program beginning August 19, 2019 and runs through November 11, 2019. Held at The Breadhouse at Ebenezer, 5166 Ottogan St., Holland, MI. Daycare will be available.
