The Isaiah 1:17 Project is seeking applicants for a program called "Dream Cycles."

The Dream Cycles program aims to improve mental health, physical health, mobility, and responsibility for at-risk youth experiencing foster home placement by providing them with a bicycle and accompanying safety equipment.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana (TMMI) in 2020 partnered with The Isaiah 1:17 Project and supplied the organization and supplied a grant of $18,260 to support the purchase of 150 bikes, plus safety equipment and associated materials.

In May 2021, TMMI's business partnering group, Toyota Christian Fellowship, will facilitate a virtual bike build where volunteers for the Dream Cycles program will assemble 100 bicycles using the company's renown Toyota Production System.

The bicycles will be made available to children ages 3 - 17 who are currently placed with fostering families in Daviess, Warrick, Vanderburgh, Knox, Pike, Posey, Gibson, and Spencer counties. This also includes children placed outside their homes in kinship care, or children in home who are working with CASA, DCS, or other protective or advocacy agencies related to foster care.

Applications can be found at https://www.theisaiah117project.org/dreamcycles or through a child's caseworker. All applications must be submitted electronically no later than Friday, April 23, at 4:00 p.m.

The Isaiah 1:17 Project says families will be notified of the status of the application two weeks prior to the event.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
