HISTORY

Humble Beginnings

What began in 1994 with a violence prevention curriculum at Franklin Middle School in Dallas has grown into something much more. That more was Jesus. With a pizza, a bunch of Dr. Seuss books, and an open Bible, Vincent Gaddis began meeting with children and families at parks, churches, and apartments.

Named by the Children

Youth Believing in Change (YBC) was formed. As we continued to grow and impact the community, God gave us a vision for a place of permanence that we could call home. In December of 2006, We were able to purchase the permanent home we prayed for debt-free, a two-acre facility located on Stults Road.

Milestones

In 2006, Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones made a challenge-match grant of $750,000 to YBC. Within 90 days, YBC tripled this gift and purchased their two-acre facility. We renovated and expanded it with the help of the McStay family, Amy Simmons and the Harold Simmons Foundation.

In 2014, YBC continued growing. Consulting with Steve Van Amburgh, CEO of KDC and colleagues in the commercial real estate industry, we added a 2500 square foot wing onto YBC's existing facility, expanding to serve more than 200 children daily.
