Saving Generations would ultimately like to have enough funding to acquire and maintain a permanent headquarters to better serve the youth of Cobb County & Metro Atlanta. Saving Generations is an educational program (school services), mentoring, crisis prevention/intervention nonprofit organization for youth ages 8-19. Our charge is to assist with making the lives of potential at-risk youth more positive; therefore, having them to live a better life at home, school and the community altogether. We have already kept individuals from dropping out of public schools, committing suicide, assisted those who needed immediate medical treatment, assisted those who were hit with disaster &/or homeless, educated those regarding topics that plague our youth today that include but is not limited to: teen pregnancy, substance abuse in the family & in the youth themselves, self-esteem, STD's/STI's, post secondary aspirations, etc. In the next five years, we would love to: have a self sustaining school with computer/resource center for easier tutoring sessions, host summer programs for those who otherwise would not be able to attend a youth program and have the ability to forge new programs & partnerships with the community so that all needs for the families can be met.

We intend to collect dues from those who can afford it, do fundraisers, ask for gifts-in-kinds, and partner with other organizations.

We collectively have over 50 members who are willing to offer physical labor for any fundraising or project completions. We are endoursed by Congressman David Scott (GA 13), Cobb Community Collaborative, Cobb Chamber of Commerce- year 2010, United Way 211 and willing to partner with others with the same vision.

Saving Generations have brought in an official accountant to help us with record keeping and assessment strategies. We currently maintain a website at http://savinggenerations.webs.com and document activity through print and photos. We also have major events documented by local newspaper. We are hoping that this summer we can host a summer program for kids 1-12 (and maybe up to 16). Simply by hosting a program for at least up to 20 children will let us know we've made a difference. At present, the major assessments are based on individual success stories of the children. We have had over 100 individuals participate with Saving Generations since 2007. Of these, we've maintained a 100% high school graduation rate (of which 10 were in serious jeopardy of dropping out). Those who have graduated are in college, military or working. We kept 3 individuals from committing suicide. We have taken in 5 individuals in to keep them from being homeless (abandoned). Finally, we have assisted 3 families from having their children enter or re-enter foster care.

We hosted a community wide talent show at Cobb Civic Center (2011) to introduce Saving Generations to the region. We donated over 85% of the attendees tickets (families with kids). We had auditions for the youth performers and put them in a major venue so that they would know they were worthy of greatness (trophies were given out as well). We partnered with Global Youth Services Day and informed the youth about HIV/AIDS; as well as, the shoe box initiative. We do host monthly meetings with the youth (attendance is increasing) and we go into the homes of these members to start a positive bond with child & family. If we have been successful in all of these efforts in the manner that we have, I can only imagine how many more people we can reach if we had our own headquarters where we can reach an unlimited amount of children and families.
