Legacy Youth Center

$894 of $61,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 8 months

St. Clair County, Michigan currently has around 12,402 students in 6th through 12th grades. Today’s students are struggling to find purpose in the midst of obstacles such as low self-esteem, bullying, fatherlessness, abandonment, apathy, suicide, addictions, broken homes, and much more. These struggles have never been more magnified and our culture has become more detached from reality and consumed by selfishness. This generation is in search of authentic, genuine relationships with people that will help them navigate through this time and believe in them. We have a vision of reaching as many of these students as possible and are committed to providing a safe and fun place for them. We focus on encouraging students to discover who they are and to live a life of integrity and leadership as they grow into young adults that give back to their community.

We are in the process of building a facility that we will call “Legacy Youth Center”. This facility will help continue the success of the three camps we already hold annually as well as other events throughout the year. These events are available for all students grades 6-12 in our community and we have already seen great success in helping students overcome struggles such as suicide, depression, anger, and loneliness.

In order to see Legacy Youth Center become a reality, we need the help and support of the community and generous donations from individuals and businesses that believe in the future of this generation. Phase One of this will cost about $70,000 and will construct a        60’ x 60’ steel building with a cement floor. Phase Two will cost about $40,000 additional to complete the building. We humbly ask that you would consider making a tax-deductible donation so this dream can be fulfilled. All donations will be used towards the Legacy Youth Center. If you would like more information about our vision and program, feel free to contact us. We would love to talk with you!

Together we can leave a legacy that reaches beyond a building…a legacy that is seen in the hearts of the next generation.

"All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine." - Jim Rohn

Tmrw is a big day!!! The materials for the building will be delivered! We are soooo close to starting construction. It will cost $10,000 for the materials for the footings. Last week we received a generous donation of $5000 so we are only $5000 away from starting construction. If you have thought about giving but haven’t had a chance, we’d love for you to join us in this great adventure. Your donations are tax deductible and 100% of the money is going into building the youth center. Feel free to email or message us with questions. Checks can be made out to: We Heart This City and mailed to: 5300 North Road, Clyde, Mi 48049
Thank you to everyone that has encouraged us and supported the youth center.
