The TOP Difference
At Teens Opposing Poverty we work to develop ministries that give youth the opportunity to interact with the people they are serving. When the interaction occurs, everyone benefits.
Many youth who participate in TOP's ministries learn to appreciate their material blessings and develop greater understanding of those who are less fortunate than themselves. They also realize that they are doing something important for other people.
Homeless and poor people have benefited from this interaction as well. TOP teens offer encouragement and an openness not often seen in adults. As a result, the youth have been able to gain insights into the special needs of the people they serve. They have been instrumental in helping a number of people get off the street and into productive lives.
It is good to provide for the material needs of poor and hungry people. TOP teens don't stop there they add prayers, hope, encouragement and a listening ear.
