There are lots of ways to impact children and teenagers and help meet some of their basic needs. Whether you want to make an impact locally or globally, we have something for you!
At-Risk Child Mentoring & Meals
We impact at-risk children through our partnership with the Children's Attention Home. We offer care, compassion and resources to help provide a safe place for abused and neglected children in the community. The Children's Attention Home ServeTeam prepares and serves a hot dinner to approximately 50 children and staff members on the 3rd Sunday evening of the month. To volunteer for meal service, sign up here.
Middle School Mentoring
We believe that mentoring at the crucial middle-school age (11-14) helps students feel secure in their identity, do better in school and have stronger and more healthy interpersonal relationships. We work with students at Southwest Middle School during the school year.
Reading Buddies is a childhood literacy program offered at several local elementary schools. This team serves for an hour a week during the school year and helps children improve their reading skills in order to read on their grade level.
International refugees often have a difficult time assimilating to a brand new culture and a brand new country. Programs like #RefugeeJitsu and Project 658 provide resources and training to help refugees adjust to a new way of life. #RefugeeJitsu provides free self-defense and martial arts classes to international refugee children to help instill confidence and make new friends.
We partner with Samaritan's Feet to provide shoes to impoverished children around the world. Samaritan's Feet inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities.
