…Tyrell is anything but a normal kid – he is exceptional. He has been coming to Straight Street regularly for 5 years and is one of the most well behaved, respectful, hardworking young men you could meet. When others fall prey to the world around them, he stands firm in all situations because of his faith in God.
Straight Street is our local mission field. It was birthed out of gang violence, and is creating change in the lives of young people in our community.
The mission and purpose of Straight Street is to provide a SAFE Christian environment where “at-risk” youth can obtain the necessary skills and training needed to mature and discover God’s divine plan for their lives.
For our purposes, an “at-risk” youth is a young person between the ages of 11 and 18 years old who is behaving in such a way that if a caring adult does not step into their life with some help, there is a high likelihood they will hurt themselves or someone else.
