A litter bit more
We are here to build relationships that last a lifetime, not fix things.
Youth 4 Orphans, Inc. (Y4O) began in 2009 as the vision of founder, Terry Hand. Over the next few years, youth and young adults from southwest Florida have joined Terry on mission trips to share their faith; learn and teach about Christ and mission; and care for orphans. In 2016, the mission became a non-profit organization in the State of Florida. As a religious, educational and charitable organization, the mission of Y4O is to a) Spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ; b) Disciple U.S. youth, young adults and their families; and c) Care for orphans and orphan prevention in communities both nationally and globally. Y4O is training tomorrow’s Christian leaders.
We are fighting for
Our team travels to La Ganove, Haiti, helping to provide basic living supplies including food and water and rent, as well as salaries for orphanage staff, teachers, etc. Activities including kid’s camp and worship engage our team and the community on this rural and agricultural island. Y4O supports the Family of Happy Children Orphanage on La Ganove, Haiti. The support helps to provide basic living supplies including food, water, rent, and provides salaries for orphanage staff and teachers. Annual support is $19,460.
Our local US team purchases supplies requested by the caregivers at the Old Bight Mission Home and personally packages the items on pallets and delivers them to a shipping company on the East Coast of Florida. Everything from personal and cleaning supplies, food, clothing and much more is sent over every 3 months. Y4O provides annual support in the amount of $18,400.
Training and educating students and young adults from the United States is one of the core foundations of what we do at Y4O. We provide an opportunity for students, young adults and their families to travel out of the country, serve in Mission and begin to understand their global responsibility to care for orphans while working with communities to prevent future orphans. In an effort to keep the trips affordable Y4O offers scholarships to students and young adults. Please consider donating to help us train Tomorrows Christian Leaders.
LET'S MAKE THE WORLD BETTER TOGETHER
We'd love to have you join us on one of our upcoming trips but, if that's not possible right now, your donation can help care for orphans at one of the mission homes we support, or simply help our youth be able to travel, spreading the gospel and growing as Christian leaders.
