“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 of support for the young adults in Orleans County, ages 18-25. It is a place for the neglected and forgotten to come and be loved and accepted 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.
We are currently asking for charitable donations to continue the renovation project of the 'Onesimus House' and to support the operating expenses of 25 East Bank Street downtown location where the Powered For Life course is held.
In October 2021 Trade 180 was blessed with the gift of a double store-front building in downtown Albion, NY. The hearts of the generous donors share the vision and mission of Trade 180 to reach the youth of our region. We are grateful for God's provision! This new location at 25 East Bank Street, Albion has allowed us to begin training and offer the "Powered For Life" course to 18-25 year-olds who will benefit from the guidance of mentors, work readiness skills and hands-on projects within varying trades.
If you would like to learn more about the mission of Trade 180, feel free to contact Heidi by email 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.
