It’s not just a donation. It’s an investment in a child’s future.
Donating pays dividends.
In the 2009 BMC Public Health study, investigators concluded that if just 2% of the children served in mentoring programs avoided behaviors that resulted in intensive services, the program would break even on benefits. We’re proud to report that our mentoring program shows positive results for 95% the children we serve, which translates to avoidance of costly interventions such as juvenile detention and “therapeutic” placements.
Your support goes far.
