Read our Top 11 reasons why we feel that supporting Heart for the City AZ with a one-time gift, or monthly donation, is a very solid decision to impact the lives of inner city kids.
We have found that young people tend to open up to, and trust, those who show that they really care about them and prove it by donating their time and energy and dedicate it to their needs.
The inner city kids we reach are mostly junior high age - thirteen or fourteen -- a point in their lives when they often choose to pursue street life in the gangs, or find a way into mainstream society.
One of the greatest rewards that we derive from our program is when we receive letters from school administrators thanking us for a mission well done.
We are currently developing yet another opportunity offering as we implement our plans for opening our Community Garden where we can teach the young people in our program basic gardening skills.
Many inner-city kids have never left their own gang-governed neighborhoods, but at winter camp we provide a unique setting to experience life's "mountain tops," free of fear or pressures back home.
Being on the street, even for that short period of time, I felt completely vulnerable. To hold up that sign asking for money made me swallow every bit of pride that I had.
"Heart for the City" and our outreach to kids was featured on the new ABC Television Network show, "Secret Millionaire" on August 11 at 8:00 pm EDT / 7:00 pm CDT.
