Being the people, in their environment has been one of the most powerful and effective things we have done. Many programs call kids OUT of their neighborhood, but we feel change happens with the people, in their own environment. On Monday evenings, we have what is called our “Neighborhood Initiative” where we place volunteers in forgotten neighborhoods to do life with our kids and families. During this program, we are relationship based, where we separate into groups and focus on crucial issues that involve spiritual, practical, and wholistic issues. Our goal is to assist kids who become loving, hard working, and sustainable in their lives. Fish for a man you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and he eats for his entire life, you’ve heard this before, but so true in our communities. Come out and volunteer!
