Mission: Is to help boys and girls, most of whom are considered at-risk and living in single-parent homes, achieve their full potential through long-term personal relationships with carefully screened and caring volunteers.

On average it costs over $600 to match one child in our program. Children that are matched, when compared with those in similar situations who are not matched, as a whole do better in school and at home, and avoid substance abuse at a pivotal time in their lives, when even small changes in behavior or choices made can change the course of their future. Right now there are kids waiting for an adult role model!
