We Belong to Each Other
We move kids into a community of belonging through emotional support, advocacy, and mentoring.
Our programs provide a safe place for kids at the Woodfield Apartments to grow, away from the pressures of home and school. Through a relationship with Jesus, quality time with consistent adults, and meaningful friendships, they develop a sense of self-worth and belonging.
Fitting in is when you’re trying to do something that other people want you to do or be like other people. Belonging is when someone invites you to do things with them. At the community center, someone always invites you to do something. Someone always asks me to play basketball with them. It’s about everyone- the big kids always try to include the little kids. Everybody gets invited because everybody belongs here.
