The J127 Dayspring Campus in Durant held an Open House on November 8, 2020. The campus is a home for anybody who is not ready to face the world alone. The website motto says it all.
“We exist to come alongside those who will be or have aged out of the foster care system, group homes or homeless by providing a loving home, necessary life skills, emotional and relational support all rooted in Jesus Christ. J127 believes with the right tools, these young people can and WILL SUCCEED.”
In October 2018, Executive Director Adrean Stinnett and her team decided it was time to break ground on a project very dear to her heart, a home to house 10 young ladies and a house parent. With the help of many generous donations and a grant from the Clark Foundation, that house became a reality.
The 5,200 square-foot home was built due to the community and their gracious donations, and donations of supplies and labor from local businesses.
Stinnett said the Open House was a smashing success with approximately 115 attendees. Stinnett said the house is already helping a few.
“We have three girls and two babies already living here,” Stinnett said.
Stinnett also noted that even though the house is located in Durant, they also serve Marshall County.
“We serve [the] Madill area,” Stinnett said. “We received a grant from THF that covers Marshall County.”
