 Empowering Community

Now more than ever.

Although First Glance is in a season that we cannot physically be with our students at this time, we are still providing meals for them! Please join us in helping meet these basic needs.  

Anything is a help! Thanks so much for considering!  

For more questions or to find out how to get food to us, simply email

You can also donate to help us continue the ongoing mission God has called us to. ​

I was a student when it first opened and now volunteer when available. The organization has impacted my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. The organization has dedicated volunteers who take time to invest in various programs that is offered at the center.

First Glance does a great job of reaching out to the youth of the community by providing a place of refuge and fun for those that need a place where they can trust in people who lead them in the direction of knowing Christ.
