Love Never Fails International, Inc. (LNFI) is a non-profit organization that exists to glorify God by providing a “hand up, not a hand out” to at-risk and impoverished children. The primary work of Love Never Fails International (LNFI) is after school mentoring programs known as Love Never Fails After-School (LNFAS). These programs allow elementary and middle school children a safe place to spend their afternoon school hours free of cost for their families. Currently, LNFI operates after school programs in three Fort Worth ISD (FWISD) elementary schools and one middle school. LNFAS serves approximately 60 at-risk children at each site. In order to provide students with the most individualized attention possible, they are divided into small groups of 10-12 students for their daily activities. LNF After-School programs operate four days a week; Monday through Thursday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at their elementary school sites; Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:30 to 6:30 pm at their middle school site.
What is the impact of LNF!? Child poverty costs the nation nearly $500 billion every year. We realize that the statistics are daunting, but an investment in our programs is the start of ending the cycle of poverty in America. No matter what our children may be facing, they are the leaders of tomorrow and their potentials are greater than their circumstances. The 2014-2015 was an incredible year, full of BIG changes for all of our programs. We served over 160 children as a first-year Full-Provider for Fort Worth ISD. The following results are calculated based on the number of children who attended the program at least 70% of the year: • Student Attendance for both campuses was 86% this year – which translates to show that of all students served, 141 students came every day! • LNFI Academic Assessment based on our curricula helped improve students’ scores in science, social studies, reading and math by an overall 13.4%! • 125 total teacher involvement hours • 537 total volunteer mentor hours • Nearly 140 students improved in their conduct grades on their final report cards! Most importantly we saw overwhelming changes in our children. We saw students transform into student body presidents, basketball captains and math-a-letes from angry, secluded and broken children. LNF attests that the development of character is the ultimate measure of success of our programs. We use student assessments, mentor and staff reporting, school discipline records and teacher observations to analyze each child’s behavior enhancement. We know that good conduct reduces high-risk behaviors that strengthen the individual, their school, family and community. LNF will always have a strong focus on character building and mentoring, as this is key to fulfilling our mission: Love Never Fails International exists to glorify God by providing “a hand up, not a hand out” to at-risk and impoverished children through positive, caring relationships and educational support.
At-risk and impoverished children, ages 8 - 16.

Reviews for Love Never Fails International Inc
Love Never Fails is truly changing lives in the greater Fort Worth area. Children are our future and LNF is strategic in how they go about reaching children and changing their lives academically and spiritually!
Love Never Fails is an awesome organization. I first became aware of it many years ago and I have been gladly donating on a monthly basis to this nonprofit that has changed so many young people's lives. Actually, after being a donor to World Vision for over twenty years I changed my monthly giving to LNFI. Both the US after-school program, the orphanage and their other endeavors in Mexico have done so much to make their respective communities better places for children at risk to live and grow. I fully expect this tremendous organization to grow in the future and ultimately become a national force in the lives of at risk children in need. Their "a hand up, not a hand out" approach is the most effective way to truly change lives.
LNFI is an AWESOME program! I've had the privileged to hear many testimonies of how the lives of these children have been changed through their after school programs. LNFI staff have a heart for these children. They are an amazing group of people who take the time out of their busy schedule to give these children a hand up!

LNFI has truly blessed many children. I have seen the love the directors and volunteers have for these children. I have two boys who volunteer for the summer camps they go on. They love sharing God's love to them. When they come home they tell me testimonies of children's lives being changed through this organization.

I volunteered for LNFI in 2014/2015 as a mentor in their after-school programs. What I love about this organization is its commitment to changing the lives of at-risk children by giving “a hand up not a hand out.” The staff and volunteers they have working in the programs are phenomenal. They are wonderful role models who carry out the vision of LNFI by building a positive relationship with each child. They give of their time, energy and heart. They are committed to seeing each child gets the attention and assistance they need not only academically, but socially, emotionally and spiritually as well. LNFI is definitely an organization that demonstrates God’s unfailing love. Mentoring in their after-school program was truly a life changing experience for me.
I have volunteered as a one-on-one mentor at LNFI for 5 years now and my mentee has changed my life! I have seen them grow through their ups and downs. It is the most rewarding experience I have been a part of. There are so many LNFI children in need of a positive, caring adult role model. I recommend this program and hope you will sign-up to be a part in some way! Love Never Fails
Love Never Fails International after school program is like no other!
It's a wonderful program for the children that get left behind. Grades improve for these kids with the help they receive from mentors and teachers. But, not only their grades, we see improvements in their attitudes which make a complete turn around. This is what makes LNFI such a great program. The teachers not only assist with the students academics, but they touch each child in a personal way. Their curriculum is fun and the kids love the attention they get from mentors and teachers. As a teacher working with LNFI, I have seen kids come into the program discouraged, angry, or upset after a long day of school. This program gives them a time to unwind and be welcomed with open arms, always ready to listen to a child when their world seems to be failing apart. LNFI is a fun and exciting program for at risk children who just need a hand up, not a hand out. carol Chavez
I first started going on a missionary trip down to Reynosa, Mexico in 2012 with my church and that was such a blessing and definitely an eye opener. Then this past summer 2015 I had the opportunity to work for LNFI in the after school program st JP Elde middle school and it has been such a great time spending time and growing closer to the kids. LNFI ROCKS!
Working with LNFI has been one of my best work experiences. The staff have a genuine love for the kids, and they always put their best effort into doing what will be best for the students. I worked with the middle school and their character development- the change in their hearts and attitudes, plus the relationships that were formed with the students was incredible to be apart of. The kids have the opportunity to do extra activists such as STEM, soccer, cooking, and flag football as well as doing college preparation, team building activists, kids in action, and blogging over the character trait for the month. This program is amazing and impacts these kids in an amazing way!
You will not find people that love children more than the Love Never Fails staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering with the program.
This is an awesome program it is designed to help young children with their homework. There are other activities that the children are involved in reading science, math and cooking, with many more activity that's not included. The staff are awesome they keep the children involved and they challenge their minds. The after school program is a safe place to be and what you can learn from each other.
