We love to enrich the lives of our participants through apprenticeships, educational services and workshops, coaching, job development and training, job placement, parenting skills, child outreach and enrichment program, and one-on-one mentoring.
We serve the shelters of the homeless and the poor communities with minor renovation and repairs; we also build community gardens and safe play grounds to promote a strong sense of wellness and community.
We care for the children’s needs of those in our program and in the communities. Our child enrichment program includes an after school care program that incorporates tutors to assist elementary students with homework, while the middle and high school students participate in Junior Achievement courses.
We believe as a faith based non-profit organization, it is our mission to provide aid to the homeless, those in critical need and the shelters that provide for them.
"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ranson for many" Mark 10:45
We desire to build partnerships with churches with the goal of equiping and empowering the homeless to transform their lives through a self-sustainable plan for the future. Our programs and services all provide the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
We enhance impoverished communities by building community vegetable gardens, safe play grounds for the children and efforts to improve public buildings with minor renovations and repairs.
We provide emergency food, clothing, shelter, eviction prevention, permanent housing, job training, parenting skills and enrichment programs for the homeless children.
We offer programs that represent solutions to dramatically reduce the homeless population and prevent homelessness among those most at risk. We know firsthand the challenges they face and shape our services to best meet their needs.
"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God" Hebrews 13:16
We need to build "Partnerships" within the faith community towards the goal of ending homelessness.
People experiencing and transitioning out of homelessness need many things: food, clothing, shelter, employment, but what they need more than anything else are healthy, positive, and supportive relationships that can literally make the difference between staying housed or becoming homeless again. Formerly homeless people who do not have a community of support surrounding them are often unable to sustain themselves in their housing. They often sink into depression even after finding housing and they return to unhealthy relationships, addictions, or other coping mechanisms, and eventually spiral out of housing and back into homelessness.
Beats the Streets seeks to end this cycle by building networks of supportive relationships that can help formerly homeless people develop their faith, realize their gifts, overcome their challenges, and become stable and contributing members of the community. Church congregations can become part of the solution by "Getting Involved" in building community and "Volunteering" in one of our programs.
