Youth & Families For Christ, Inc.

YFFC

 

 Madison Detention Center (MDC) / Northeast Nebraska Juvenile Services is visited every Saturday morning, where we host a bible study.  MDC is located at Madison, Nebraska.  Our volunteer team of dedicated and devoted followers of Christ bring the message of hope through the Good News of Christ. We also provide bibles free of charge to anyone at MDC who needs one. We realize MDC is a transition place during difficult times in their young lives.  We know the value of time and present the Gospel every Saturday and leave the Word of God in their hands.

Community Service is offered by YFFC to give youths a place to work their community service hours in a environment designed for youth, ages 11-19. We encourage personal developement through out other programs or one-on-one mentoring.
