Building the Dream for Tomorrow's Youth


was to build a 4,700 square foot facility equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, classrooms, meeting and recreation space for our Find-A-Friend Youth Program. It is our dream that the Youth Enrichment Center will uplift our youth and empower them to uplift their community.

Made Possible by a Community of Dreamers

our progress

In 2 years time, we raised 100% of our $700,000 goal to fully fund the construction of The Manning Family

Find-A-Friend Youth Enrichment Center. View our gallery to learn more about the Build the Dream Campaign and how our community helped us realize a dream. 



Your name will appear on a plaque in front of the building to remind a grateful community that you believed in the dreams of our kids!
