DLD's Juvenile Justice Services are focused on motivating incarcerated teens toward holistic growth. This takes place during their incarceration in juvenile detention centers. It continues once they are released. The post incarceration process includes becoming a part of the Youth Coaching Plus program.
DLD's work with local churches, helping them develop into transformative communities focused on the attitude of Jesus, is also an important aspect to the Juvenile Justice Services. All youth need three to five adults in their lives. But not just any adults. They need adults who are invest in the long-term work of deliberate, consistent, authentic, and nurturing concern and care. The best way for this to be effective is if it takes place in a strong community setting.
One of our objectives in helping local congregations become transformative communities focused on the attitude of Jesus is so they can become a chorus of support and the choir of commitment for troubled youth. All youth and young adults need adults in their life. This is especially true of incarcerated youth who tend to be the most at risk and disconnected in our communities.
DLD is committed to working with all youth and young adults. However the most disconnected highest risk youth are our passion.
WILL YOU CONSIDER HELPING US MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THESE FORGOTTEN YOUTH FROM OUR COMMUNITIES?
Presently it takes about $150 per week for us to invest our lives into these hurting youth while they are incarcerated.
Often they are forgotten. Often they have no positive adults to turn to for help.
WE ARE THERE FOR THEM EVERY WEEK
WE ARE THERE FOR THEM WHEN THEY ARE RELEASED
