Krause Children's Center

The Krause Center provides help, healing and hope to troubled kids between the ages of 12-17. Many of these children have been removed from their homes because of extreme physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Krause is a residential treatment center to help these kids through therapy, spiritual care and education. Volunteer opportunities include organizing a youth group activity on site which would include any of the following: Bible studies, worship, crafts, games, sports, and group building activities.

The kids at Krause love spending time with other teens and adults. Because of the nature of the facility, you should work closely with the staff to make sure your activities are appropriate for the residents.

Here is a testimony from a group that served at Krause in the past and had an amazing experience there.

"The Krause Center changes lives the lives of its residents and the lives of volunteers. Our youth group experienced this first hand during a week-long trip. By the third day, our teens were engaging in true caring ministry as they shared the love of Christ to the Krause teens. As the week ended, tears were shed, hugs were shared, and lives were changed. Even though we could not maintain contact with the Krause kids beyond that week, our youth still carry them in their hearts and prayers today. The Krause Center opened our eyes to the brokenness of this world and to the power of healing found in the cross of Christ."
