We're passionate about helping kids reach their fullest potential. Join us on a journey of connecting, empowering, and transforming lives.

Desmond is a "barrel child". His mom works on a cruise ship for 6 - 9 months at a time. She sends him clothes and food (they come in a barrel) and sees him twice a year. Help us fund a mentor program so he (and many others) can get more adult support and individual attention.

Shamika has mental challenges and a big smile. She lives at St. Benedict Home for Children. She'd like a table to share with her friends so they don't have to do their homework on the floor.

Rhona was sexually abused. She is safe now at Guadalupe Home for Girls. Her house mother requests help with food and toiletries for 24 girls. (The home burned down in March 2020 and is still awaiting approval to be rebuilt – and the basic necessities are always a great need.)

In St. Vincent and the Grenadines, we work with adults to improve the lives of children. We provide:

  1. Empowerment: We're kickstarting a Program Coordinator for our Mentor Program to pave the way for brighter futures.
  2. Transforming Trauma into Resilience: Our specialized training equips teachers, counselors, and mentors to make a lasting difference by teaching ways to work with kids experiencing trauma.
  3. Support for our underfunded partner programs: Guadalupe Home for Girls, St. Benedict Children's Home, and Marion House.
  4. Impact, Service, and Cross-Cultural Connection: Join me on a Mission Trip to St. Vincent – or help fund someone for their trip.

In Minneapolis, we provide:

  1. Fun, Focused, Brain Training: We train kids to focus! We celebrate the uniqueness of every child, focusing on nurturing their brain development using brain training and teaching mindfulness. Our program fosters lasting improvements in focus and attention, benefiting academics, self-confidence, sports, the arts, and more.
