Mission Statement


"Let the little children come to me," said Jesus (Luke 18:16). Our vision is to be a church-based after school program that starts with first graders, with the goal of mentoring those children all the way through high school. Over the last five years we've grown from 15 students to 40 students and ten staff. Currently, we are serving kids up through 12th grade, looking forward to our first graduation class in two years. As a holistic ministry, we partner with parents to meet academic, physical and emotional needs, with the primary goal of seeing each child reach their potential by building a strong spiritual foundation... The S.A.Y. Yes! (Save America?s Youth) Center is based on a model developed by Campus Crusade for Christ, which is used in inner cities all over the nation. At the S.A.Y. Yes! Center, kids have a place to truly call their own.
