Hi imJames Hanson Hungry For God Home took me off the streets over four years ago and gave me a safe place to sleep and get my life redirected. Pastor Larry took me in like a son and helped me get job training in weilding, carpentry, landscaping and enrolled in college and now working as a full time carpenters assistant. I love this ministry to the at risk youth of Austin.
Hungry For God Home has transformed the lives of young men 17-24 years old aging out of foster care and fatherlessness, homeless and hopeless. Housing and bringing help, healing and hope restorative justice to over 250 young men since 2003. I've seen dropouts become valedictorian and fatherless young men become faithful fathers. Homeless young men get stable housing or return home. Those coming from the juvenile justice system graduate from probation and become productive citizens giving back to community. As a life Coach I saw the difference listen to an at risk young man share his hopes and dreams and watch them become a reality as he matured in a loving stable home. Volunteering with others in community to make a difference from Travis Co. Sheriff to River City Youth Foundation in Dove Springs an risk Austin area community and St Johns Reagan High School Community through the yearly HopeFest serving 4,500 needy families this small non profit is partnering in making a huge transformation of Austin Texas by bring hope to one fatherless youth at a time.
