To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

What We Do

We defend the potential of young people by serving kids between the ages of 6 - 18 in all nine Bay Area counties.

Many of our kids are from single-parent homes or live with a non-parent caregiver. Many live below the poverty level, with caregivers struggling to be an active presence while providing financial necessities for their family. Exposed to greater adversity such as elements of gang activity, substance abuse, and crime, they have the potential for greatness but need a special role model and friend they can trust.

We are a lifeline for these kids, by providing a special match with a mentor to help them realize their potential.
