Mission: Over 24 thousand children in Florida Foster Care, 21 thousand at-risk youth in the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice System, and over 59,000 arrested/intakes in 2018. The suicide rate for kids ages 10 to 14 nearly tripled in the last decade around the nation. Children who feel abandoned, unwanted, unloved, rejected, and alone. This organization brings compassion and love from its supporters. Our mission is to utilize our programs by speaking hope and encouragement through inspiring true-life stories of our own heart healing experiences. Our purpose is to help instill confidence, worthiness, better self-esteem, and create positive memory events. These at-risk children already have enough bad memories. It's about setting their hearts free to become the person they were meant to be!
Results: As a Nonprofit of 47 years, we are furthering our cause, and it is the most crucial goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high-quality resources to the children in our state in a safe and secure environment. Our success is not measured by wealth or profit margin but by our value to those we serve. These are some of our results in 47 years of working with inmates and youth. We have now transitioned to working only with at-risk youth.
