Kirkwood UMC will be letting us use Randle Hall beginning next week until we finalize long term plans. Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, and help! We couldn’t do this without you.

"Beyond stuff, we lost a place. A place so many called their safe haven."

We are devastated but not defeated!
For 5 years we have been serving youth in the greater Irving area through mentorship, leadership, character development to grow their decision making, self-esteem, confidence and to give them an opportunity to be around mentors who want to help them grow and be successful. We have MANY wonderful plans for 2018 but those were put to a halt when we walked into our facility to find a flood for the New Year.
We lost belongings, which thankfully can be replaced but we must move. Our greatest concern is to lapse the opportunity to serve the many families we work with on a weekly basis. These youth are facing depression, loneliness, teen pregnancy, bullying, drug use and more. They yearn for the time with their mentors and program leaders to build them up and support them.
As we seek a new home for ATMN we are asking you to help us make that happen. It is not in our current budget to afford more but we are walking by faith to make a new home reality. We want to continue serving and increase that impact. We are at a crossroads and choose to believe this is a setup for greater rather than a setback.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward to find best next steps for All Things Made New. If you'd like to help us make this possible 100% of all donations will go straight to our facility needs.
Please share! Please Help! Thank you!

IRVING – Michelle Flores never expected to start the New Year packing up the non-profit she spent the last five years building up.
“Chaos and shock,” she said. “It's one thing at a time.”
Her organization, on Main Street in Irving, is called “All Things Made New.” It's an after-school mentoring program for at-risk middle and high schoolers.
