Freedom for Youth Ministries began in 2004 from an 18-year-old girl who was found living under a bridge in downtown Des Moines. Since then, the ministry has grown to include after-school programming for inner-city youth (ages 6-17) at Freedom Center Campus, transitional housing for young adults (ages 18-22), and youth centers in rural communities of Iowa. Hear from Hope Member, Mark Nelson, about his call to start FFY, and the vision he has for the future.
