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.

LNFI is impacting children's lives every day, both here in Texas and in Reynosa, Mexico. I love receiving their newsletter and reading story after story about how these troubled, at-risk children are literally being transformed into leaders among their peers. It amazes me to see what can happen to a child when he/she receives the love, encouragement, and help they so desperately need. God bless LNFI!

I've heard so many stories of children being transformed through this ministry - it blesses my heart, and I simply love being involved with this organization. It is very obvious the directors and volunteers have a huge heart for at-risk children, and will devote their time, energy, and love to these kids to see them succeed in life.

I pray that more and more people will be led to donate to LNFI, and to serve as volunteers. I'd love to see the after-school programs in more and more schools!

I have been a donor to LNFI for over 6 years and participated as a counselor in their annual summer camp. I have witnessed the genuine love shown to these at risk children. I have also had the privaledge to hear from these children how LNFI has made a positive and lasting impact in their lives. The dedication and love the LNFI staff and volunteers have for at risk children and their families is absolutely inspiring and greatly admired. It is a joy and an honor to contribute to LNFI and th wonderful work they all do.

I donate to LNFI on a regular basis to help fund the work they do to mentor and encourage at-risk students. There is a great need to demonstrate to these children that someone cares about them. The volunteer mentors, under the direction of a LNFI director at each school, help these children deal with the issues they face in their lives as well as help them with their school subjects. They take them on field trips to businesses and other events to expose them to careers they have not had the opportunity to experience. I have personally visited one of the schools and shared my work experience with them. They were very interested and asked probing questions about specific aspects of the engineering tasks I perform at work. They are good children that just need some help and encouragement. LNFI is truly a worthy organization to support financially as well as become a volunteer mentor.

I have seen children with attention and discipline issues become much less disruptive and more focused when they experience the love and attention they receive in the LNFI program. LNFI does a great deal of good for these children. In many cases I believe it is a life changing event in their lives that gives them the hope and encouragement to succeed in life.

They do an excellent job helping children with the resources they have available. With more resources and volunteers, they could do even more.

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.
