“Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.”  — Jess Lair, author


Female Foster Youth, Age 14, @Access Granted Now

"I want to hang our artwork up above our foster home fireplace so that girls coming in after us will have hope."

Male Foster Youth, Age 10, @C.H.O.I.C.E

"At first I didn't want to do the activity because I didn't think that I could do it. After, I thought it was fun and I really liked it. It made me realize that I can do things that I didn't think that I could do and how to not get frustrated and how not to give up."

Linda Showalter, Volunteer

"You might think that you, as a single individual, can't make much of a difference in this world of ours that has so many huge needs. But you can! You can by partnering with or supporting just the right non-profit organization. As the leader for my church's Community Outreach program, I've come to know the remarkable young woman running this non-profit. She so inspired our church members in explaining why she is doing this that we've made a commitment to support her programs. She'll help many at-risk kids explore creative ways to envision a better future."

Barb Bennett, Director of Residential Services at Carlton Manor

"I wanted to send a big thank you for all the wonderful art groups you did with our boys at CM 1 over the summer.  The kiddos, staff and program felt they were a really great experience and  everyone enjoyed them."
