The Streetlight RV can be found every Tuesday and Thursday nights in the parking lot of First Baptist Church – 568 Richmond Street – from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Come by for some food and friendship.
For the past 15 years YFC London has been an active and present influence in the downtown core of London through the Streetlight program. Streetlight exists to be a consistent resource that meets the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the at-risk youth community. The Streetlight program operates out of our Mobile Youth Center (RV) that sets up downtown every week, and is staffed by a team of dedicated outreach workers and volunteers. Our goal is to provide a safe and consistent place for at-risk youth to come to receive food, supplies, support, advocacy, and a sense of community.
Streetlight acts as a referral agency for youth seeking help in the areas of housing, mental health, legal issues, employment, and skills development. We have the opportunity to support these youth and walk alongside them as they seek to make positive life choices.
Each week we have the opportunity to connect with youth who need to know that they aren’t alone in this world, and that there are people who care for them. Trusting relationships are the key to progress and all of our efforts are put towards supporting, encouraging and inspiring youth to see the abilities they possess and the resources that are available to them.
We are called by God to share our lives and His love with others, and Streetlight exists to do that in a very tangible and relevant way.
