REDEMPTION, NOT RETRIBUTION
A sense of permanence and stability is essential to the development and well-being of all human beings. Unfortunately, this is lacking in the lives of the young people we serve. Their lives are plagued by chaos, uncertainty, and fear. Most of these kids have no place to go home to.
We are remedying this situation through the establishment of Estrella Vista (“Starry View”), an 80-acre year-round youth encampment and desert mountain spiritual retreat near Big Bend National Park in West Texas.
Here are offered an opportunity for healing and effective rehabilitation; “green” building training; entrepreneurial and food production experience; a safe self-sufficient community living in harmony with God and nature; and a permanent home for abandoned youth they can control, visit and use for the rest of their lives.
The year 2012 sees the commencement of a 10-year building program providing infrastructure to support a community of approximately 15 young people: a guest room addition to the main house, toilets and showers, a freestanding kitchen and dining facility, workshop and storage, library/school, guest cottages, greenhouses, astronomical observatory, etc.
Your financial support will help kids learn the lessons of freedom, self-responsibility, and adventure and will help them create renewed lives.
