Our dream is to provide love, support and hope for children and their families in the community and to give them a sense of value to help guide them into a successful future.
Programs: After school programs called Sonshine (elementary) and Higher Ground (middle school) Clubs, are held on public school campuses. This outreach program's main emphasis is to provide encouragement and development of good character and moral values for children. Our classes are based on stories from the Bible. Before each school year we offer our most needy kids who are graduating to middle school an annual back-to-school event called Cinderella/Cinderfella Day! They are treated to a shopping spree for a new outfit, underwear and shoes, a haircut and a new backpack including school supplies. The day ends with a pizza lunch, celebration cake and a before and after picture of the student wearing their new outfit.
Amazing program for kids, my boys went all through elementary and during the summers. They loved going so much as young kids that they volunteer as much as they can now. My 15 year attended summer school so he could not work a full day but insisted that he go right after class to volunteer. They have been a very positive, caring and nurturing influence for my boys and great role models as well.
