OUR START
The seed that birthed Healing Nations was planted in January of 1997 during the devastating floods in the
Central Valley of California; particularly the west Modesto area. While assisting flood victims during
this time God impressed upon Shirley Salter's heart His desire to express His love through her and others
in a new place and in a new way. The victims of the flooding in west Modesto were to be the first children,
youth and families that we would learn to love and serve and be blessed to become a part of their lives.
Over the years Healing Nations has grown into the ministry it is today.  

We are a Christian-based organization that believes healthy development is both balanced and
multidimensional, including physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual components. We reach
out to youth and their families by building caring and supportive relationships, offering teaching that equips
and empowers, and partnering with the community at large. Our services are available to all without
discrimination.

YOUTH AT RISK
The term “youth at risk” is quite often in reference to kids who lack the necessary support or resources for
normal adolescent development. They may experience barriers that prevent them from meeting the
educational, economic, or social expectations of their community due to issues like poverty, minority status,
and lack of family support.  

The goal of Healing Nations and it's volunteers is positive encouragement, strong relationships and
providing opportunities to experience the possible.

Healing Nations seeks to understand each youth on an individual basis with the focus on identifying their,
skills, gifts and passions. The strategy then becomes providing mentors, resources and time to develop
those skills and passions. The end result is a student with confidence, goals and a support system they
can rely on.

Fundamentally, our focus is relationships. We endeavor to develop healthy and strong relationships; peer
to peer, youth leader/mentor  to student,  and ultimately building a meaning relationship with Jesus Christ.
