Maryann Kephart | Co-founder & Board Vice President


Married for 18 years and mother of 4 teenagers. I have a genuine joy and love for life, and serving. I have a passion for youth, and have served with youth at different capacities for the past 8 years. I have a desire to help the youth overcome difficult situations in their life. I want to show youth that they are precious, valued and loved not just by me but by their heavenly Father, Jesus Christ.  In 2008, as I drove around Colorado Springs noticing many closed businesses, felt a desire to see a safe place where youth could come, hang out, have fun and learn about Jesus.

Katie Brown | Co-founder & Board Member


I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, studied at the University of Wyoming. During college, there was a need for youth group volunteers and as I remembered the impact that my own youth leaders had in my life, I was encouraged to get involved. As I did youth ministry overseas, God reminded me of a dream to impact the lives of youth in my home town. Youth today face many obstacles and often just need to know that they are loved and worthy. I have a passion to see youth discover who they are in Christ and to live with the hope and joy that comes from Him.
