Generational poverty can be broken. We've been doing it for more than 25 years.
Children born into poverty are at risk for dropping out of school, substance abuse, incarceration and teen parenting. We provide a salaried, professional mentor, called a Friend, for their entire childhood, from kindergarten through graduation. 12.5 years. No matter what.
We select children facing the highest risks. We help them change their stories.
We commit to each child for the long-term. 12.5 years. No matter what.
Each child is paired with a salaried, professional mentor called a Friend.
