Giving opportunities to youth

Mission

Vision

Youth 15-24 should have the opportunity to seek and live a productive life

Our Foundation

Christ for the Crisis is a 501 (C) 3 nonprofit organization, organized in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 2007.  The organization was established due to the lack of permanent placement for Foster Care youth.  It later became instrumental in addressing the needs of youth and young adults in crisis within the community. 

Last year, in our region, approximately 43% of children entering the foster care system were teenagers. 

Today's youth are in dire need of services and our community has been greatly impacted. CFTC helps prevent our local youths from multiple crises such as  entering the foster care system, youth detention centers,  becoming victims of human trafficking, early parenthood. or seeking behavioral health services through providing resources for youths and families

Christ for the Crisis (CFTC) believes every youth and young adult should thrive in life.
