*Juan* is being raised by a single mother who works hard as a cleaner at a nearby mall. Without New Horizons, Juan would go home to an empty apartment each day. Instead, he comes to a safe place after school and is now reading on grade-level, passed his state STAAR tests last spring, and recently had a solo part with our Super Kids Choir. New Horizons is changing the trajectory of Juan's life and is telling him a different story of belonging and community.

The Impact of New HorizonsJuan's Story

Inside every person, every child, every at-risk child, there is immense, intrinsic value given to them by God. Kids like Juan (story above), who are full of limitless possibility and potential, made in the image of God to do beautiful things – to do good in this world – and to make a difference in their schools and their communities.

And yet far too often, too many of our kids end up not believing this and become another negative statistic.

There are thousands of underprivileged kids in our community who are growing in up in poverty and struggle in school and eventually fall into the same negative cycle. We believe something else for them.  Long term, what we see is that

  • They read on grade level and graduate high school with a plan for their future.
  • They are high character kids full of grit, determination, and self-confidence.
  • They discover faith and become positive change agents in their families and community.
  • They would find a positive, caring mentor and return each year through graduation.

Can you begin to imagine this type of change taking place in our kids? We can, and we’d love to have you experience the joy of helping make it happen by supporting 1 child.
