Glenda A. Smith Youth Sanctuary is raising money to build a youth residential complex. We will target homeless youth and it will not be a detention center. It will be built on church property in the greater Cincinnati area.
In many ways, it will model Campbell Lodge Boys Home that was located in Northern Kentucky. It closed in 2012. Campbell Lodge was built on church and community partnerships.
It is our desire to give homeless children the same opportunities as other children. That is, to build character and maximize each child’s potential.
Our hope is that you will partner with Glenda A. Smith Youth Sanctuary to achieve this lofty goal.
