I have had the oppertunity to visit the shelter several times over the past few years delivering Christmas gift and my son has spent time with the kids at the center through the fellowship of his church group. The shelter provides a valuable service to the children who pass through its doors. The staff is loving and kind.

For the past 7 years, I have worked closely with NTYC with our overlapping cases. The staff goes above and beyond for the kids. Plus I have seen the kids thrive in the positive atmosphere of the shelter. If kids have to be in a shelter NTYC is one of the best.

Not only provide a shelter and transitional living center but also expand to residential treatment centers which are greatly needed in our area.

North Texas Youth Connection has helped so many youth and families over the past year. They share donations of food through the second harvest program with other area shelters and foodbanks. They shelter homeless teenagers and go above and beyond to really make a difference in their lives. They provided free counseling to my son and our family, and we saw his grades and performance in school increase dramatically. Since then I've become an occasional volunteer and donor, and see the good use that they are putting my help to, helping so many others in the community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the direct impact on the kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. They all went above and beyond to help my family, even referring us to other agencies for things that they didn't handle.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

dramatically change the lives of thousands upon thousands of children in a large portion of North Texas. They are already a cycle breaker, ending child abuse and homeless, but would be able to do so for many more youth.
