Your Support is Crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.

Our Vision

Could you imagine...

a life without possibilities? A life without hope? There are approx. 1,200 students with mental disabilities in Dallas high schools that live in this reality. Rejected by most peers and ignored by society, students in special education are often left isolated and abandoned. Unfortunately there are very few who reach out to this special community.

Young Life Capernaum is a Christ-centered outreach ministry serving teenagers with physical and mental disabilities in the Dallas area. We are dedicated to serve these students by meeting the full spectrum of their needs: physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. We believe that adolescents with disabilites should have the chance to experience all of life's possibilities.

Where we are today:

  • Young Life Capernaum impacts over 50 students with disabilities at the Notre Dame School of Dallas.
  • We are ministering to young adults from The Notre Dame School, Plano, Lake Highlands, Richardson, Rowlett, Mesquite, Garland and Duncanville
  • We bring 35 students to a week long Young Life summer camp in Colorado and another camp in Florida.
  • We currently operate with one full time staff and 17 volunteer leaders.

Where we are going:

  • Recruit additional staff and volunteers to help with our expansion needs
  • Increase our camper numbers by 10% every year
