More about the Straley House

The Straley House is part of a new program called Catalyst, established for kids who have been screened out of other programs because of drug problems or other behavioral issues. So before this, the most troubled kids have had nowhere to go. Catalyst was started as an experiment to see whether this population could be successfully reached.

In the first 150 days Catalyst has had remarkable success, moving several young adults into recovery and needed treatment programs while stabilizing others to move to rental or other housing. Our prayers should continue to go to this amazing staff and to the young people who are struggling with these issues.

So thank you again for our church’s support in preparing meals for them, giving in the truest Christian way since these kids are not really able to give back or adequately show their appreciation.
