Project Lost Sheep became a non profit in 1994. Founder, Joyce Dueker, had
a calling from the
Lord to seed the future in children. With pastoral advice,
she started with a core team in California.
The group started and funded programs like touchdown camp, tutoring/
scholarship programs. Project Lost Sheep believes these
enriching activities with good adult
role models can make a difference in the
children's lives and prevent them from following
a common path to drugs
and gangs. Project Lost Sheep believes in education and
to stay in school.
Our small efforts have changed over 1000 children's lives for good and as
this work expands
in time, more children in America will have hope and a
The Project Lost Sheep non-profit is run by a board of directors:
Silvia Patrica Cardona - President,
Mary Charcape Gonzales - Vice President,
Elaine Biser - Secretary, and Sharon S, Lee - Treasurer.
At Project Lost Sheep, we believe
God and our local
communities by providing
to outreach programs
for "at risk" children.
These programs include an
annual summer camp,
tutoring and mentoring services
and college assistance.
A day camp brings together
"at risk" children for five days of fun,
education and character building.
Approximately 150 children,
from 6 to 11 years,
attend this yearly event held in August.
Camp includes a rich array of
activities such as Bible study, arts
stories, sports, and at the end of
camp, the distributing
of a backpack
containing a Bible and school
supplies to each child.
Our first Touchdown Camp was held in Redwood City, California
in 2004, and is expanding to other cities.
Our goal is to invest in children
so that they can grow in wisdom
and character. Growth happens
when our volunteers interact
and provide children with
tutoring in school work
questions about life.
We are always looking for
volunteers who desire to shape the
of children. Come, make a
difference by being a tutor or a mentor.
We understand the importance of
college education and provide
small scholarship if funds are
available for that purpose.
A college education gives children
a deeper breadth of knowledge
and brings better opportunities
for their careers.
Help us support our children by
donating to this program and
be the hero for Leg-Up College Fund.
