Lighting their way campaign

The goal of the Lighting Their Way Campaign is to raise funds to build the Empower 7 Ranch and bring life-changing solutions to empower the lives of vulnerable youth. The Ranch will provide a place for at-risk youth to live, programs to help the teens successfully complete their high school education and develop critical life skills, resources to aid students who wish to pursue higher education, and personal growth curricula that will enable each individual to pursue happy healthy adult lives.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
