Josiah's House Hope Continues 

For our young adults who are turning 18 and moving off the Josiah's House campus, the heart & desire for them is HOPE CONTINUES. Many entered Josiah's House with little to no education or life skills. It's vital that they have the opportunity to finish high school so they can further their education and continue building upon skills they have been taught during their years at Josiah's House and attend a University or Technical College. Giving them the tools & support that they need to finish school, while also finding a job, sets them up for success. Without this brand-new program, HOPE CONTINUES, these incredible young adults would be thrust back into the very places where they came from before, Josiah's House. This is how you can come alongside the next generation of Dominicans, so they can help to change their country & make a difference! Will you consider partnering with the HOPE CONTINUES program for life after Josiah's House?
