Thank you for your gift to COYFC’s 2022 Golf Marathon. Juvenile Justice Ministry conducts programming serving residents (probationary youth) at five detention centers in Central Ohio. Each day there are between 150-200 teens in one of these facilities. A team of 34 adult volunteers and two full-time staff serve in this capacity.

Recently a young man who is being held in the Multi-County Juvenile Detention Center shared these words with me: “It is really cool to know that people we don't even know are praying for us while we are in detention. It can get very lonely in "lock-up". Realizing there are individuals out there that care about us means so much."

We’re so grateful that we can share the message of God’s love and hope with "high-risk" teens throughout Central Ohio. And we thank God for you joining with us in this mission. James 1:27
