Alphabet Scoop opened in 2003 as a job and life skills program for youth created by Father's Heart Ministries. The program is designed to prepare youths with the skills needed to advance in their school and work endeavors. Teenagers and young adults receive classroom instruction and work under a manager in the store. Every time you buy their ice cream, you are helping a youth remain in a teaching and nurturing environment and off the streets.
Father's Heart Ministries is a 501(c)3 incorporated in 1997 to fulfill the mission of "helping people move from dependency to dignity and from poverty to prosperity." All of the programs are designed to fulfill core values of unconditional love, acceptance, forgiveness and commitment to those we serve and to help them move forward in life.
