Life360 House

The foundational years of life should be spent receiving guidance in a stable environment. However, roughly 20% of youth in the Ozarks are homeless or without the crucial support they need to thrive. The Life360 House mission is to provide young adults with the housing and tools they need to start a responsible life.

Project Overview

Homelessness in Youth

Many youth in the Ozarks experience homelessness or unstable living conditions due to cycles of abandonment, addiction, abuse, or poor choices. Faced with such overwhelming challenges on their own, many turn to drugs or criminal behavior. Most importantly, without any support or guidance, many of these young adults understandably lose sight of what will help them flourish. Homeless youth in the Ozarks need our help so that they too may achieve their dreams.

Life360 House Response

Life360 House is a direct response to this call to action. At Life360 House we provide affordable housing in a family-like environment. We embrace taking steps with God towards becoming our best selves and finding our calling. Life360 House offers affordable housing, provides furniture and clothing, and even assists in providing rides and groceries for young adults in the Ozarks. Our mission is to provide basic but much-needed support so that our residents may feel empowered and confident to begin on a fresh path. 

Let's Make an Impact Together 

Life360 House would like your help so that we can further support our residents and ensure that they have equal opportunities to flourish. We believe in the impacts of community collaboration and are looking forward to connecting with you. 

Funding Goals 

We would like to raise $6,000.00 so that we may accomplish these things:

1) Provide work shoes and clothing and new resident basics

2) Groceries for residents 

3) Transportation to work, appointments, and more

4) Support staff and house leaders

About Life360 Community Services

Life360 Community Services FEEDS, HOUSES, EDUCATES, and EMPOWERS those in need.

Feed

When the physiological need for food goes unmet, impoverished youth struggle to focus on homework, engage in after school activities, or nurture the developmental building blocks that lead to a successful future. To help youth thrive, LCS distributes a five component snack to 12,500+ youth across 20+ rural school districts. In addition to the meal, a daily 15-minute enrichment activity is provided to the classroom to help youth improve literacy skills, cultivate character, and transition to the rest of their day.

The LCS nutrition program did not end when COVID19 caused school closures. Instead LCS continued to fight youth hunger through the distribution of over 1 million nutrition packs to families with youth under the age of 18. 

House

Many young adults and low-income families struggle to access and sustain housing that they can afford. Emerging adults exiting the foster care system lack the support system to go out on their own. According to the National Foster Youth Initiative, 20% of youth that age out of care become instantly homeless. Young adults with a juvenile record also struggle to get by. Roughly 44% of youth on the streets spent time in jail or a juvenile justice center. To help these emerging adults get on their feet, Life360 House provides supportive housing to 14 young adults experiencing homelessness through four housing units. 

LCS is actively expanding its capacity to meet the housing needs of struggling individuals. Y Gardens, opening in August 2020, is a 41 unit apartment complex built in partnership with Creason Development and Missouri's Housing Development Commission. 8 of the units are designated to youth exiting the foster care system while the remaining units are for individuals from 30% to 80% of the area median income. 

Educate

Cradle-to-career educational supports are offered through Life360 Preschool, Camp Fairbanks, Royal Family Kids Camp, Fairbanks Coffee Shop, and Jobs for Life. Through the promotion of kindergarten readiness, closure of the achievement gap, and soft skills development; LCS helps individuals gain the job skills needed to become financially self-sufficient. 

Empower

Never do for someone, what they could do for themselves. Life360 Community Services believes in cultivating the natural skills and talents of individuals seeking to improve their daily life. The theme of empowerment runs through all of our programs and services.
