I have been involved with the Paul Anderson Youth Home since 1965. I have seen so many young men come through the doors broken and in tremendous need. I have seen them leave healed, with hope, with a high school diploma, a future, and most importantly, following Jesus Christ, 

Business response:

Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring story about your involvement with the Paul Anderson Youth Home. It is amazing to hear how many young men have been positively impacted by our program's mission to provide care, hope, and direction through Jesus Christ. Your commitment and dedication is truly admirable!

My overall experience has been great here at PAYH. It has been an awesome place to work and assist young lives with learning to get their lives in order. Our staff are relevant and focused on the needs of the young men God allows to enter our doors. I have worked in two other youth settings and this by far has been the most rewarding and the most therapeutic.

I have worked at PAYH for several years. It is truly a blessing to be here and work with other Christians for a common purpose, which is to help young men get a second chance in a Christian setting.
