“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…””

Isaiah 61:1-2

Trade 180 is a caring community that supports young adults ages 18-25 in Orleans County and the surrounding region. It is a place for the neglected and forgotten to come and be accepted and valued for who they are. Each will be given the opportunity to develop life skills, work skills and learn a trade while discovering their value to God and to their own community. The heart of Trade 180 is to see each individual thrive in life, not just survive day by day. Through Godly counsel and spiritual training there is the hope that each young person will become whole in Jesus Christ.

Programs at both locations in the village of Albion for emerging adults.

We are currently asking for charitable donations to complete the renovation project of the 'Onesimus House', to support the residential discipleship program, and the weekly lunch and learn classes downtown at 'The Bridge'. 

If you would like to learn more about the mission of Trade 180, feel free to contact Heidi O'Hara by email at [email protected] or phone 585-261-0219 to set up a time to meet in person. May God richly bless you!

Trade 180 is a grassroots ministry developed out of a need in our rural communities in the Orleans area. Many young adults are graduating from high school and living on the margins of society feeling depressed, anxious, lost, hopeless and looking for something to fill that void.

Trade 180 is a caring community of support that equips young adults, ages 18-25, with life skills and work readiness through Godly counsel. We believe that every individual is created in the image of God and has a particular purpose in life. For those young adults lacking direction and looking for their purpose of life, Trade 180 is a “Home of Hope” to become whole.

Through faith-based character building and exploration in the trades, mentors guide young adults to discover their God-given purpose. Trade 180 offers weekly classes to prepare students for the workforce and the opportunity to do hands-on projects of varying skill levels. The focus of Trade 180 is in our name… for each young person to have repeated opportunities to “trade the old life for a new life in Christ” (a 180 degree turn) while learning a trade and discover the dignity of work.
