How One Way Ministries help abandoned teens:
- These teens have no one in their corner due to parents who are addicted, in prison, or unable to care for them for various reasons.
- Most of our teens are couch surfers; some live in the park, in sheds, or the lucky few live with grandparents. They’re all in school desiring better lives for themselves.
- We work with counselors in the St. Tammany Parish public school system who share the needs of teens with us. We meet those needs all year through gift cards, food, clothing, mentoring, and more. We also provide gift bags filled with goodies and gift cards on every important holiday for each teen. There are currently approximately 100 teens that we help.
- We also help with electric bills and rent when needed.
Ways you can help:
The school counselor suggested $5 and $10 gift cards from Walmart, fast food restaurants or the Dollar Store. They can purchase food and personal items they may need. If you wish to purchase gift cards, please drop them off to:
