There is a lot of need in the world.
But we can’t meet it alone.

As we partner in ministry together, we can help inspire positive change to improve the lives of at-risk children and teens.

Help transform the Christmas holiday for our foster children, teens, and families by being part of our Christmas Connection drive.

Change a life and give today.

A monthly gift shapes the life experiences of children and teens who need it most!

  • Lilly and Tracy arrived in care with nothing. Monthly giving provided the resources for them to receive fresh clothes, shampoo, and soft blankets to take to a foster home.
  • Jack was able to start school with new clothing, shoes, and a backpack full of supplies so that he didn’t stand out as a foster kid.
  • Jacqueline attended her prom in a beautiful dress, jewelry, and even new makeup, just like the other teens.

Does your church feel called to serve the least of these in a profound way?

Become a difference-maker

1 Peter 4:10 calls us to use our gifts to serve others. Caring for the vulnerable among us puts the heart of God on display with purity and clarity. Practically speaking, what does this look like? How can we all participate in loving children from hard places and supporting the families that care for them?

As a faith-based nonprofit, our beliefs fuel everything we do. We would love to discuss ways your church can partner with us in reaching at-risk children and teens.


Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Romans 12:13

Back-to-School Drive

Students need school supplies! But for many children and teens in care, a lack of school supplies is a common barrier to academic success. That’s why EmberHope Youthville holds an annual Back-to-School drive.

During June and July, donations can be made at the EmberHope Youthville campus in Newton, Kansas: 

900 W Broadway Newton, KS 67114

Donation Items

School supplies shouldn’t be what keeps a child or teen from reaching their full potential. Every donation makes a difference.

Contact Tamber Rouse to get started and schedule a school supply drop-off at 316.226.9713 or email at

If you cannot make it to the campus, but would like to contribute to our drive, please donate below. 

Christmas Connection

Ready to make Christmas wishes come true? Help transform the holiday for our foster children, teens, and families by being part of our Christmas Connection drive. This drive collects and distributes gifts and other goodies for the individuals and families we serve – for use at Christmas and throughout the year!

Contact Tamber Rouse at 316.226.9713 or email at for more information.

Are you ready to get hands-on?

We host an annual volunteer week each year! We partner with the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission – as well as individuals, groups, and churches who are ready to help – to work through the to-do list on the campus. 

Whether it is grounds work, replacing outdoor benches, or giving a room a new coat of paint – there is a project that fits you and your team’s availability. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Plus, each volunteer will receive a free t-shirt!

There is power in hearing someone’s story. Our Walk a Mile art exhibit showcases the heartbreaking and emotional stories children, and teens tell in Foster Care.

For more about this life-changing event – and to see images from this year’s display, check out our online gallery.

Walk a mile

You can also give to help support this event. We need the donation of shoes to be used in these art projects and sponsors.  Walk a mile in a child or teen’s shoes today. Be part of helping them express their story through heartfelt art.

Give today!
