In this video, we give you an update on TruLight Youth Village.
TruLight Youth Village is the first emergency shelter for foster children and teens in Guadalupe County. We tackle a lot of overflow from San Antonio’s Bexar County and then other surrounding areas.
A large part of why we started the Village is to have the ability to place large sibling groups together. We see that when these children from large families are placed together, close to their siblings, that make them comfortable, feel safe, and it then allows then to thrive without worry of where their siblings have gone.
In this video we learn:
#1 – The Donation Center to support our foster families/kinship families is about to open!
#2 – Our Discovery House is about finished. This is the Amazon Wish List we put out to create an incentive-based shopping center for our teens to earn points and then shop for goodies for their good behavior!
#3 – We have been able to match more kids/teens to loving foster families. We have been able to help more of our teens spiritually at the Village. Hear what one court guardian ad litem had to say about the progress of one of our Village teens.
#4 – Thank to you Freedom Fellowship Church for donating a “Gaga Ball” pit to the Village!!!
#5 – HERE’S THE BIG NEWS: After a year of back and forth about the prices it would cost to bring another building into the Village and be able to serve more children, God came through in the form of an anonymous donor. TruLight127 Ministries has received a full donation to purchase two new houses to add to the village. We are amazed at God’s will towards the hearts of others and we are excited to add to our Village to provide a real “home” to our kids and teens. These two houses will help at least 16 more children/teens who find themselves in foster care. “COVID doesn’t stop God’s heart for these kids,” says TruLight CEO, Sondra Ajasin. “His heart is to show them love. God will always show up.”
UPDATE: The two houses were bought and delivered on the week of July 23rd. Please see the rest of our videos in this playlist for an update!
