How You Have Made a Difference

Instead of traditional costumes, our Early LIFE program issued a creative challenge to “Dress Like a Book Character.”
We received a generous gift from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, enabling us to upgrade our New LIFE barbershop. Through our career development program, students can earn graduation certificates in barbering.
A Honduran woman and her teenage daughter sought asylum in the United States, fleeing a life of domestic violence, constant fear, and extreme abuse. Follow their harrowing journey and learn how we came to their aid. This story is still developing.
