Our volunteers reach cross culturally to engage kids and their parents in need. We are caring for needs like this:
(written and shared by Emily Ramirez who leads our hispanic outreach)
One of our kids that attended our fall party and has come to after-school tutoring once or twice is often found wandering the streets in the community where we serve. He is only 5 years old, coming from a hard-home life situation, and needs a lot of love and care poured into him.
A girl we work with is struggling with finishing high school. She needs to pass two classes before graduating and she has little motivation and I think lots of fear about what to do after school. Pray she can graduate, and go on to college through sponsors.
Two people we work with are living in a two bedroom apartment with 7 other people. We are pretty sure their family of 4 are all sleeping in the same bed. Their two little kids are not in the most safe environment. Pray they can find a non-communal living situation that would be safer for their children.
