Did you know that most of the strengths, unique qualities, and needs of our communities are represented at our local schools? The truth is that the same kids in your house of faith are the ones sitting in the classrooms down the street!
Who We Have In Common
Schools and churches live in every neighborhood in every city across the country. And while they are separate institutions, both exist to serve the children and families in their communities. More than that, they often serve the very same children and families! The power of working together means that we can actually meet needs and bring support that will lead to change for the entire community!
Ruben started tagging at age 12, dropped out of school and found himself in a jail cell by his 17th birthday. His story could have followed the statistics of so many children facing challenges that often lead to them being cut off from who they could become: being part of an underserved population, growing up without a father, dropping out of school. But people of faith, teachers, a local business leader – a whole community gave him a second chance and a pathway toward a better future
