Helping Hands International strives to give back to it’s local community each year in an impactful way by supporting local ministries through hands on care. Over last last few years with your help we have been ably to completely restore and old house for Westside Compassion, install a playground, new flooring and many other misc. projects for the Women’s Gospel Mission and now for this years Southern Oregon Makeover project we have the privilege of partnering with 71 Five Ministries (formerly Youth For Christ). They are an amazing organization that have been supporting youth in the Valley for over 30 years. There is a huge need for the relational ministry they do and as a result are expanding. They have purchased the old Fire Station building on West 8th street in Medford and have begun the process of converting it into a youth center. Helping Hands will be working with them to do all of the demo requirements for the project which includes; wall removal, sheetrock and roof demo, roof system removal, etc. Once the building is a clean slate they can begin the next phase of putting it all back together.

TRUST TO HOPE
Youth 71Five Ministries (formerly Rogue Valley Youth for Christ) provides many opportunities for loving, caring, Christ-following adults to engage in the lives of lost and hurting kids. We aim to bring hope through relationship; providing a safe place to belong and sharing the message of the Gospel. There are a number of ways for you to be involved in the work God is doing in the Rogue Valley – there is a place for you on our team! Young people desperately need your friendship and the love of Jesus in their lives. Through your involvement and God’s power, we will see young lives transformed.
kids need a safe place
Too many kids lack nurturing homes and a sense of belonging. At our 71Five Campus Youth Centers and 71Five City Community Center, kids find a safe, fun place to relax and caring adults who take the time to know them. 71Five Campus programs provide opportunities to discuss life lessons from a Christ-centered perspective. 71Five City is an effective ministry model to transform the lives of inner-city youth, their families and the neighborhood communities that they live in.
kids need hope and encouragement
Many young people make poor decisions related to drugs and violence. These kids often end up in Juvenile Detention Centers feeling broken and hopeless. And our 71Five Connect Workshop reaches kids with a powerful resiliency program in local schools. The 71Five Justice and 71Five Connect staff and volunteers offer listening ears and the hope and encouragement found in a relationship with God.
kids need someone to imitate
Kids are always looking for role models to imitate, but many are growing up in relational poverty where they have no good role models to follow. Our 71Five Justice, 71Five Mentors, 71Five Parents and 71Five VoTech mentoring programs provide young people with long term trusting relationships with adults that form the foundation for healthy influence.
We are unique in our work
Although we offer fun and helpful programs for kids, our real work is building the relationships necessary for kids to thrive. By providing places where youth feel secure, by delivering a message of real hope, and by being people kids can truly count on, we are seeing lives transformed.
