Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
- Proverbs 22:6
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT IMPACTING OUR YOUTH
It is unbelievable that with all of the technological advances and resources available we still have children in many communities that can't read. Some can't even identify simple parts of speech. Using targeted resources we establish baselines to find effective ways to address each child's specific needs, which will have a positive influence on their lives.
Rebecca's Garden of Hope has a goal of planting healthy, positive seeds in the lives of young people in our communities. This approach gives more youth a better opportunity to succeed. The question becomes, "How do we find the ones that need our help?" Going into the community and introducing ourselves to our neighbors is one way and another way is by establishing productive relationships with community partners. When we combine our efforts and resources we can often get better outcomes while helping each other accomplish our individual and collective goals.
Many children feel hopeless and helpless, living in prisons of loneliness and despair. These children's lives can often spiral out of control because they feel no one cares and there is nowhere they can turn. Each Garden of Hope ministry provides a safe, Christ centered environment where children can receive the support and love they need to heal, grow and thrive.
