Juvenile Justice Ministry (JJM) seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters). These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities.

Youth For Christ partners with group home agencies throughout Fresno and Madera Counties to support, mentor, and share Jesus with high-risk teens. Though these agencies meet the physical need of the teens, they cannot introduce them to the love of Jesus and how it transforms lives. Youth For Christ has the opportunity to share that love and bring hope to the lives of these youth.
