Our mission is to build lasting relationships, nurture hope, and restore dignity by creating family-like relationships for Cleveland's youth.
As a result of our work, we believe that youth impacted by poverty will no longer be invisible or marginalized in Cleveland. There will be a decrease in loneliness, homelessness, and joblessness among the youth we serve, resulting in a reduction in the loss of human potential in our city and a lasting reduction in the exposure to adverse experiences for the children of young parents we serve.
We are creating small communities of hope where young adults who have experienced foster care connect weekly with a committed group of volunteer mentors. Young people look forward to coming to the table because it is a place of peace and belonging. The youth-led partnership promotes new experiences through action, love and lasting relationships.
