Monroe Hardy extends a hand of hope to young boys from environments of indifference and brutality. The small school compound is a haven of respite while the boys grow through education and experience emotional stability often for the first time. Through hundreds of volunteer hours plus an exceptional staff the goal is to guide, seek, and bring to fruition the potential within each boy: everyone benefits.

Monroe Harding fills a critical void in the DCS system. Countless numbers of at-risk youth have been served and continue to be served by this much-needed organization.

Many times challenging children are given up on, but with Monroe Harding many of these children have been given the opportunity to change their lives in a positive way and have went on to be successful young adults! I am an active foster parent through Monroe Harding. The concern and love they show each and every child that is placed through them is amazing. I recommend them to anyone who shows an interest in foster care. They are staffed with great people and have many wonderful programs. Supporting the work of Monroe Harding's programs is helping the communities around you because the children that come through their programs are the leaders of our future!
