With your support, a child can have the opportunity try new things, develop skills and achieve goals alongside first responders who become their trusted role models. Building self-esteem and self-confidence is key for children to have hope for a better, brighter tomorrow.
We empower people in our community to rise out of poverty, move toward self-reliance, and reach their full potential.
Campers are given the invaluable opportunity to build relationships with first responders who volunteer as camp counselors and teach life skills at a critical time for learning and molding perceptions.
