Most of the children and families Garden of Prayer Youth Center serves are low income, and many live extremely below the poverty level. Our participants cannot afford to pay for after school services out of their own pockets. Garden of Prayer Youth Center's primary funding comes from state and local government grants and contracts. As a result of the economic condition of our state, funding is reduced year after year while the need for the services we provide increases year after year. For these reasons, we fundraise to avoid cutting services or reducing the number of children and families we serve.

Check our calendar for our fundraising events as well, such as our car washes, talent shows, tag days, and more.

Thank you for your support of us and of the families we serve.
