from our ceo
Success can be measured in developing empathy, learning how to resolve conflict, and a child realizing their worth.
We believe that every child deserves a chance to be great. And that every child should believe they can be great. That looks different on every child we serve. When we defend the potential of our kids, we can provide a foundation for our community that consists of responsible, productive and kind adults. Adults who show up for their friends, keep their commitments and be there for their neighbor. And frankly isn’t that what we are all trying to accomplish?
WE RAISED MORE THAN $315,000 IN EVENTS
