Overview

Self-reported by organization

Today’s children face challenges around every corner. We live in a world today where kids learn how to fight before they learn how to read, they learn how to dance before they learn how to pray. Drop-out rates are high, teen pregnancies are more and more the norm, and broken families abound. Especially for those who are economically disadvantaged, breaking the cycle of a legacy social problems is difficult. Too often, children are left to fend for themselves, lacking the tools to take on their own futures and become the next generation of successful leaders.
 
Family Heritage Foundation (FHF) is working to empower youths and their families, to challenge them to live lives of distinction – to rise above the problems they face, and equip them with the skills and abilities to succeed in a demanding world.
