Mission: Love Never Fails International is a non-profit charity [501(c)3] that exists to provide a "hand up, not a hand out" to impoverished children and families through assistance, tutoring, and mentoring. Our mission is to: * Partner with low-income children and families to bring about social, economic, and spiritual rebirth through assistance, tutoring, and mentoring; * Pursue lasting solutions to the underlying causes of poverty and bring relief to those who are suffering; * Create in the midst of urban blight wholesome places for families to flourish; * Lend a hand up, not a hand out; * Empower families to rise above negative circumstances; and * Lend aid both domestically and internationally.
Results: LNFI uses both quantitative (report cards & TAKS scores) as well as qualitative (surveys and parent/teacher observation) data to evaluate change. Program Results (Quantitative): We have found through evaluating school-issued report cards and TAKS scores that children who attended on a consistent basis (at least 80% of the time) and participated regularly in the program showed the following results in the 2009-2010 school year: • 73% of the students received academic recognition on the A or AB Honor Rolls in the final six weeks. • 87% of the students earned Satisfactory or Excellent conduct scores in the final six weeks. • 90% of the students earned passing scores on the Reading TAKS test. 26% of these were commended. • 80% of the students earned passing scores on the Math TAKS test. 17% of these were commended. • Students in our Birdville ISD programs increased their reading fluency by an average of 36 words per minute over the school year. Program Results (Qualitative): The following data was collected through anonymous surveys that were conducted: • 67% of teachers & administrators said they saw a change in the behavior of the children. • 100% of teachers & administrators said the LNFI program has had a significant impact at their school. • 100% of teachers & administrators said they would recommend other schools begin an LNFI program. • 73% of parents said LNFI has positively impacted their child’s behavior. • 91% of parents said LNFI has positively impacted their child’s reading level. • 91% of parents said they believe their child’s attendance in LNFI has helped decrease altercations and other problems during the after school hours. • 94% of students said they have felt loved by the people at LNFI.

It is wonderful to see what an impact Love Never Fails is having in the lives of children. Most of us take for granted that someone loves us and wants to see us be successful. For some of these kids, Love Never Fails is the first time that someone has really and truly taken the time to invest in their lives - the first time someone has taken the time to help them with their homework and encourage them and teach them not just academics but life lessons that will follow them into adulthood. It is incalculable how great an impact love can have. These kids will look back some day and point to Love Never Fails as the turning point in their lives - the point where they started to believe that they are special and important and valuable and loved.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reynosa, Mexico and the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand into more schools and into more areas of Mexico.

I have watched Love Never Fails grow from a single after school programs to multiple programs and schools. I have seen the kids grow through love and care and change their school and life behaviors. These kids deserve a chance and LNF gives that to them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

better grades, higher morale, better citizenship and more loving natures.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

multiply it in many schools
