DURANT, OK. – J127 Ministry has been awarded a $100,000.00 matching grant by the Clark Associates Inc. The support will allow the organization to fund part of the construction of the transition home to house and develop up to thirteen young ladies that are transitioning out of the foster care system.
We will provide a loving environment, focus on the individuals’ needs and help reinforce them in critical life skills, emotional support, spiritual growth, and education needs.
“The Clark Associates Inc. matching grant will help us reach our goal of raising $250,000.00 to build our first transitional home in Durant for those who find themselves in unpredictable living situation after aging out of foster care,” said J127 Executive Director Adrean Stinnett. “This matching grant helps us achieve our mission of changing generations to come for the youth who age out in our local neighborhoods and communities.”
