"Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we MUST CARE..."
We have kicked off our first series at Mc Fadden Ranch in Roanoke. We are leading a Parenting and Paternity Awareness (P.A.P.A.) curriculum, designed by the State Attorney General's office. Currently, we are focused on helping young dads prepare for living with and raising their children.
If you are interested in participating once a month, or even one time, please let us know!
We also partner with One Heart to provide weekly one-on-one mentoring inside several facilities. Training is provided both by One Heart and TJJD.
We are also working to implement a similar program at Gainesville State School.
We have recently joined hands with Communities in Schools (North Texas) to provide school-based mentoring during school hours. We have several mentors (male and female) building relationships with elementary school students to make a difference in their lives.
By partnering with this established organization, we are able to bring our mentors to the table to reach a larger need in the North DFW area.
Mentors spend one hour weekly with one student at one school. We are also looking to begin a monthly leadership program.
Opportunities are available for both men and women.
We currently provide community-based mentoring outside of school hours.
Our goal is to provide a safe place after school, in the early evening, and weekend hours, with male role-models, who focus on building positive relationships by just "being there". As appropriate, we will help the mentee with school work or homework, play sports, play games, and spend time together. Time will be spent building strong, healthy relationships in one-on-one mentoring sessions.
Mentors will spent time either one-on-one or in group settings allowing both mentors and youth to build strong, healthy relationships. Activities are fun and engaging, while encouraging boys to be boys.
