Mission & Values
The Dam is a Christian organization committed to being a welcoming and safe community for youth at-risk. We become a friend and resource to youth and their families by building relationships and providing programs that focus on their physical, social, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Love, Dignity and Respect for Youth
Youth are worth it. They are made by God and possess inherent worth.
We are created by God to be in relationship with each other. We come alongside youth and build friendships of trust and respect.
Youth can be themselves when they feel welcome, safe and accepted.
We are a dam – stopping the flow of youth at-risk in our community from experiencing the pain of homelessness, broken relationships and isolation.
The Journey Towards Full Potential
We encourage youth to discover who they are and know where they are going, to make a positive impact in the world as they reach toward their full potential.
Staff and volunteers are our most valuable resources. We care for and invest in them.
Partnering with others who have a heart for youth at-risk, we make a greater impact than on our own.
We have a responsibility to share what we have learned with others to develop their capacity and effectiveness.
Faith in Action
We relate to others with the compassion and grace that flows out of our Christian faith.
