We are addressing the needs of the poor in San Antonio, TX. Our mission is to encourage, empower, educate and mentor "at risk" students and families in the inner-city. We help through providing education programs, mentoring, tutoring, food resources, and partnerships with other local non-profits.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is life change. To see students and families that are in pain, that are broken, that are in hardship have loving people walk beside them to see new levels of success, freedom, and hope!

We encourage, we empower, we educate, and we mentor. This process creates relationships that effect change. We have been in the inner-city for over 30 years. We know that the success of a program is not numbers but relationships. Relationships create bonds, friendship and trust that creates and environment for long-term change.

We have 17 staff members that serve full-time to run our programs. We have a volunteer base of over 1,200 volunteers annually. We also have over 25 organizational partners that feed into our organizations to help us accomplish this mission. This workforce is strong and on a mission for life change.

We are making plans to open an education campus in San Antonio. We also plan to expand to two other inner-cities in the next couple of years, 2021 and 2022. We plan to expand what we do to Memphis, TN and Houston, TX.
