From our CEO, "There are youth right around the corner from each of us who didn't eat last night, who've never been to a movie or felt the kindness of someone other than their tired, exhausted, and often single mother, struggling to make ends meet. Your sponsorship today will give an at-risk youth the opportunity to see the world differently and to believe and appreciate that there are people like you who care about them." D. Feagin, Sr.
