As our LCC children have begun to move from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood, it has become apparent that we need specialized programs to help them transition successfully to independence. We are excited to announce the addition of Life House – a transitional home for LCC high school students.
Kenyan house parents live with the teens at Life House and model a Christian lifestyle and “normal” family life for these youth. Life House programming emphasizes a parent-child relationship, healthy family/marriage dynamics, spiritual development, counseling, life skills, and entrepreneurship.
We have rented an apartment building near the LCC for Life House with parent quarters, shared apartments for the teens, and a large common area. The teens help plan the Life House events and handle the majority of the cooking and shopping for themselves.
We plan to offer Life House type programming to all kids at the LCC in increasing degrees as they approach high school.
