The Guy V. Lewis Basketball Center
The Guy V. Lewis Basketball Center is in the planning stage. We will have an after school program for area youth to give them a positive physical activity that will build self-esteem, and encourage a team attitude. This will help many young people who otherwise might be latchkey kids.
There will be a competitive basketball team for qualified students at the Impact Center. This will be for students of the Center and select home school students who are doing well in school.
Annually, we will host a basketball camp for the area, and will bring in ex-players of Guy Lewis as well as other known basketball players who are willing and are good role models.
Closing the Gap
A senior activity area will be set aside for interested seniors where they can come together and enjoy meeting one another in a Christ-centered environment. We will have planned activities that they will enjoy, such as crafts, social events, game nights, etc.
Seniors that stand out as exceptional will be invited to participate in our Grandparent Mentoring program, where we will introduce them to children who are in particular need of the love of a grandparent figure. This program will be planned and monitored for the safety of the children.
The Father's Table
The Father’s Table is an outreach that feeds people in the Impact Center. In addition, we will have classes for everyone on healthy living, organic vs. non-organic, and much more.
We will reach out to area organic farmers for discounts and donations to The Father’s Table, and we will serve only healthy foods that go way beyond the minimum legal requirements.
In addition to this, we will endeavor to meet practical needs of families and elderly with a Helping Hands program.
We will sit down with people in need and assess their situation, offering advice and counsel, food, clothing, practical help, job help, and more.
Farm & Ranch Program
The Heavenly Acres Farm Program is one of our favorites. We will utilize animals, gardening, and nature to teach the children so many things about life. This program will be exceptional for all children & youth, especially those with any kind of emotional or learning challenge.
In the process of enjoying the farm, these children will learn valuable skills, such as animal husbandry, gardening, sustainable living, and so much more. They will help tend to the animals, learn to grow plants from seed, learn about aquaponics, raising chickens, and tending sheep. This program is essential to the life-changing atmosphere we will create for children and youth.
Horse riding therapy will also be offered for those who qualify.

The Father's Table
Food banks and feeding programs for the poor generally have mostly unhealthy food. While it’s good to have food when you otherwise wouldn’t, we want to take it to another level and feed people healthy, nutritious food that will help them to feel good and be healthy.
We intend to visit area organic farms and some of the stores that sell organic produce, meat, eggs, and other items, and ask for donations. Most of these places have an overage that they can give.
We will also offer nutrition classes for anyone in the community.
Professional Therapy for Children & Youth
Horseback Riding Therapy
Horseback riding therapy is a well-established way to help children with certain special needs. We will have a program for the children who need this therapy to help them heal.
Physical therapy is a necessity for some, and we will integrate this therapy program for those who need it. We will also have access to chiropractic care, functional medicine, and more.
Counseling for All Ages
Our top notch counseling facility will be open to families and individuals who need it. We will offer a sliding scale fee basis for those who cannot afford it.
Many young children are in need of speech therapy to help them get a good start. There may also be older children that, for whatever reason, have challenges with their speech. This is a vital program for any child who struggles to speak correctly.
Job Training & Assistance
We will develop a vocational program that for those who are graduating from our school, home school, or any other school, and who would like to learn a vocation.
We will also have training for older youth and adults who need assistance getting jobs and how to prepare for it.
People often learn their parenting from dysfunctional families, or are very young and need assistance and teaching. We will offer special classes free to the public that will support parents in their endeavor to become the best parents they can be.
For those whose children are in the Impact Academy, we will offer mentoring to parents and students together.
