Grant Received from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation

January 30, 2019


Youth For Christ of Northern Indiana (YFCNIN) announces that the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation recently awarded us a generous grant of $10,000 to fund our City Life urban ministry. This funding allows YFC to continue to impact urban teens through our programs that provide opportunities for educational success, economic literacy, civic literacy, moral & spiritual literacy, and basic health & safety.  City Life’s holistic approach to reaching young people aligns with the Foundation’s mission of caring for the whole person: body, mind and spirit. The goal of our programs is to raise young leaders who will transform their schools, their families and their neighborhoods.

“We are grateful for the St Joseph Community Health Foundation’s support and their commitment to helping impact the young people of our community. Their generosity enables us to continue serving the youth of Ft. Wayne and raise up the next generation of leaders,” says Chris Todia, newly appointed YFCNIN CEO.

Without this generous funding from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation, many local teens would not have the opportunities offered by City Life. YFCNIN would like to thank the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation for their support that allows City Life to continue serving local teens.
