About

The Youth Chaplaincy Coalition is a group of like-minded individuals and churches that seek to provide services, in a faith-based context, to Youth Detention Centers.

Mission:

The mission of the Youth Chaplaincy Coalition is to provide quality, innovative, comprehensive services for the whole person, to youth and families affected by the justice system within a quality volunteer and work environment staffed by knowledgeable, ecumenical, and caring faith-based volunteers.

Vision:

While the justice system can treat the psychological and physical symptoms a youth in crisis has, chaplains have a unique opportunity to bring in the third leg of the stool, spirituality.  By bringing a holistic vision of the child, the possibility of healing the body, mind, and spirit  becomes a reality.  Our work creates possibilities for transformation and integration.

Values:

The mission is attained by adherence to the values of listening and loving.
