HOLLAND, Mich. — Lakeshore LifeWorks Ministries helps support youth that are aging out of the foster system and has recently opened a detail shop, according to the Holland Sentinel.

LifeWorks Auto Renewed is co-owned by Rick Mannes, founder and director of Lakeshore LifeWorks Ministries, and Kevin Stagman, a detailer, and they saw opening the business as a logical extension of the ministry’s growth, notes the article. “It was meant to be,” said Mannes.

The detail shop provides youth with the 80 hours a month of employment necessary in the state to gain access to the Young Adult Voluntary Foster Care program that “extends foster care to age 21 and offers a safety net of supportive services and financial benefits during the transition to adulthood,” according to the article.

The business, continues the story, provides young men in the ministry program steady work, and a job skill. It also allows for a flexible work schedule for them to attend school or earn a GED.
