Announcing a NEW Program 

Kids20180111 15163 i7skhb
We are partnering with the TreeHouse program in Minneapolis to reach at risk teens
from the age of 12-18. Why ? Because too many youth are suffering
from abuse, bullying and from poverty. They do not
know how to cope so they are hurting themselves,
others and some choose to take their own life.
Our vision is to reach every at-risk teen so they are
loved, feel hope and realize transformation!
TreeHouse is a faith-based organization offering
hope and guidance to at-risk teens dealing with
tough issues. All teens are welcome. We provide
a safe environment and mentorship for them.
Transformation is possible! Built on proven models of
effectiveness and based in Christian faith, TreeHouse
leads teen to lasting transformation through a range
of programs we’ve developed and honed over
decades of hands-on experience. TreeHouse and
ATLAS will provide support groups, mentoring one to
one and then classes for Going Deeper. TreeHouse’s
success rate speaks for itself. 98% reduce at-risk
behaviors, 81% build healthy relationships with God,
self and others, 24 % more likely to graduate and 93%
pursue an educational or vocational track for their
We need you! Introduce a friend to TreeHouse.
Do you know an at-risk teen you could tell about
ATLAS and this program? Volunteer. There are lots
of ways to volunteer with the TreeHouse program:
mentoring, providing some food, driving teens to
ATLAS etc. Donate! This program will take finances so
we ask for your help in that. Pray! We believe prayer
makes things happen! We invite you to pray for our
TreeHouse program and its teens and leaders. less

Dave Ramsey is very engaging, has a sense of humor and has a wealth of knowledge as to the wise and not so wise ways of handling our finances. He presents his info in a way that is easy to follow. He has opened my eyes to how to get rid of debt as fast as possible, how to avoid paying unnecessary interest , and how to invest wisely. I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone!
