More than two thirds of young people ages 6 to 17 are not receiving sufficient developemental resources to put them on a path to success in adulthood.*

Two out of three young people wish there were more places where they could hang out, feel safe, and have fun. And almost half of young people wish they had more caring adults to whom they could turn to for help.*

"It is not our children who are failing. It is we who are failing our children."

The five key resources that coorelate with success in both youth and adulthood are caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, effective education, and opportunities to help others.*

Our Mission & Vision

Millions of children are in need of extra support, guidance, and love in our country. They are experiencing the difficulties of poverty, abuse, negative environment and many other areas of distress. Believe it or not, many children in K-5 are even experiencing PTSD because of their surroundings.  

Our holistic programming offers children healthy outlets to discover what makes them enjoy and learn naturally. It also allows children a safe place to be: physically, mentally and emotionally. And while each of these programs helps the child grow in a positive manner, the underlying and lasting effects of our programs run much deeper. The core of our organization and programs is to help the child gain self-esteem and self-worth, believing in themselves and helping them learn that they are worth so much more. We focus on growing the child's personal want to be a better person both within themselves and within their community.
