Young Adult Ministries (YAM) is a Pan-Orthodox ministry for the young adult Orthodox in the Houston Texas area. Our mission is to cultivate and educate our young adults, leading them to the fullness of the Faith and likeness of God; by utilizing the four circles of Christian living, Worship, Fellowship, Service, and Witness, young adults are integrated into the life of the Church enabling them to become active members of the body of Christ.
Service Project at the Beacon Day Center: The Beacon is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. More than 85% of Beacon services are operated by volunteers. The Beacon serves approximately 600 clients daily and, some days, surpasses 750 clients. One of the most important services provided by The Beacon is case management. Our goal is to do more than simply feed people and put them back on the street. The Beacon is helping clients identify, locate, and access services that can help them address the root causes of their homelessness and begin the journey towards moving off of the streets and becoming self-sufficient. Case management guides clients through a complex system, providing tools that ultimately lead to increased stability.
