Each year, over 5,000 young lives are lost while trying to survive on the streets


We Are Becoming is dedicated to serving street youth- runaways from abuse, thrown away kids or those who have aged out of the foster care system. We exist to break the bondage of poverty and hopelessness. We are a catalyst for change in the trajectory of a young life.  

Our mission is to serve street youth and to strengthen them to foster a sense of identity and purpose.

Our vision is to see the compassion of Christ restore hope in young lives.
