We have taken a comprehensive approach to youth development, realizing that conditions are connected and require a number of different interventions to achieve long-term change and success.
Our goals are to help families out of poverty and toward living-wage incomes and to prevent young people from living in poverty as adults fostering healthy relationships with their families and positive role models as well as preparing them for success as they enter each new grade level and through out the school year.
