- feel and be safe,
- know someone cares,
- be challenged by interesting, life-enhancing activities.

September 30It's 3:00 PM and for far too many kids in our community, leaving the safety of school means nowhere to go, nothing to do and no adult supervision. Your gift will help open doors to Great Futures for hundreds of local children and teens by providing them a safe place to belong afterschool, caring mentors and impactful, fun activities that help them achieve academic success, live a healthy lifestyle and develop good character and leadership. Help us by donating to their great futures! https://goo.gl/qkSTkd
