Established in Southwest Florida eight years ago, the nonprofit’s programming has rapidly expanded to reach families in 24 counties across the state. To date, the program has served 9,000 children and kept 98% of children served through mentoring and hosting out of foster care, while helping nearly 42,000 job seekers find employment through church-based job fairs across 22 states.
