the project

Our mission is applying realistic life skills to prevent youth homelessness which in most instances became homeless less than six months of aging out. Youths age out with virtually no skills to become gainfully employed, no money management training, and no opportunity for permanent housing.

Dayton Ohio experienced tornadoes that we need to look at on the ground throughout the region, maybe even more,” said John Franks, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio. The weather service issued 36 tornado warnings overnight across the region.

The Corona-virus is best described by Montgomery County Commissioner Carolyn Rice and Dayton City Commissioner Matt Joseph said both governments are trying to help people and businesses navigate the health crisis, unemployment, food needs and other problems related to the pandemic even as tax revenues plunge. By law both governments must balance their budgets and the county has already announced $18 million in cuts.

Adults are suffering from these effects, but adults have more reliance, experience, will power and the determination for survival. When the adult has a rough road, youths seem to reach out to drugs and crime, which causes communities to suffer more by paying for their incarceration.

The program is focused on changing not only the main stream of education, but to change the mind set, the personal ambitions to succeed and take on the challenges that life has in stored for our youths. Systematic programs such as educational institutions and homeless shelters as to  only offer Band- Aids when the open wound requires stitches therefore decreasing the risk of infection.

The changes will not come right away, but as a society don't we count on the future? Ohio has the chance to be the very first to make an impact on youth, why not be part of that impact, solution, and notoriety that we as a State made that change.  

No program has ever included or instituted vocational trade classes for foster youths for remodeling homes for the beautification of poverty stricken neighborhoods, auto mechanics, auto body repair, welding, culinary skills. No program has placed youths in a facility with in-house learning that students earn credits from an accredited school, and not overwhelm public schools causing overcrowding.

The results of this program could revolutionize the way foster youths are perceived and with the inclusion of “Establishing Industry-Recognized Apprenticeships,” IRAPs are high-quality apprenticeship programs that provide individuals with opportunities to obtain work place relevant knowledge and progressively advancing skills. The program has been tested and approved by The Department Of Labor.

"A PATH TO SUCCESS" needs your contributions for some preliminary funding for domain development, a webpage, website design, computers for virtual learning, software, equipment, paper, ink, while waiting for funding approvals. Help support what could be the most systematic productive cost effective youth investment for Ohioan's, and revolutionizing a educational pathway for our youths.

why we're doing it

Family Rescue Shelter is promoting "A PATH TO SUCCESS" to create a method that will impact youths that have anger issues, control issues, leaning disabilities and transform those negitive thoughts into positive ones. Two methods are implimenting an apprenticeship program approved by the department of labor, and offer the educational portion via online. Connect youths with compaines associated with the department of labor program (I.R.A.P) jobs for youths from a database created by the department of labor. The design will allow the local schools in the area to educate the local youths with no intrusion of displaced youths in the system to cause over crowding, will not affect local schools to in crease student to teacher ratios.

The second method will offer foster youths 14 years of age to 16 yeears of age to particapate in a vocational trade school that will provide education and hands on professional job skills. The job skills shall offer remodeling homes for the beautification of poverty stricken neighborhoods, auto mechanics, auto body repair, welding, culinary skills. The program will not only offer job skills to youths, but benefit the community by offering low income residences with services in the job skills offered to the youths, reducing how much residences pay for car repairs, car body repairs inculding welding, and resale of remodeled home at low budget costs that also affect the beutification of the neigborhood.

Every youth particapating in the project recieves $5,000.00 upon completion of the program, paid wages after completing the instuctional portion of the trade school, wages fron the apprenticeship program, which will be managed by a bookkeeper. The financial portion acts as an insentive for youth to control their temper, increase a sense of purpose, and create a positive mind set for the future.
