Adam and Mary DeYoung, founding mentors, began in April 2018. Adam and Mary were drawn to 3:11 because of their deep belief in the power of community. Mary has her Master’s in Social Work and experience working with youth in a variety of situations. Adam is an engineer and property manager, with a passion for cultivating authentic relationships. Youth in their home have already obtained and maintained employment, developed interdependent relationships with one another, and are looking towards their futures.

Living in community has just solidified my belief that relationships that are worthwhile take time, require sacrifice, and are some of the sources of the best joy.

Work hard, play hard – AKA, we love to have fun together but we also work really hard during the week

3:11 has grown my understanding of our broken system and given continued exposure to wonderful people.
Each week, youth and mentors gather for a family meal. This is a time for celebrating successes, working through concerns, and sharing life together. If cooking is your gifting and you’re interested in providing meals please let us know!
Every young person who moves into a 3:11 house receives a mattress of their own and can take that mattress with them when they move out. This includes a full-size mattress, a full-size boxspring, a full-size bed frame, and delivery.
Whenever a new youth moves into a 3:11 home, they receive a welcome basket full of essential items like sheets and hygiene products.
