Have you looked into the eyes of a boy without hope? I have-and it changed me. As the father of three boys, I think about my sons when I look into the eyes of a boy without hope.

Many of the boys I work with don't know what the future holds for them. They live only for today. For some, the world is limited to their drug-infested neighborhood. That's why the Center for Community Development exists-to offer hope. Through our Steps to Manhood Mentoring Program, we provide hope for the future for boys in grades K-12. Our boys have been studying the wisdom the Lord has given us in the book of Proverbs. In addition to hope, we offer help with homework.

The Center for Community Development provides transportation to and from all mentoring sessions. As you know, gas prices have risen significantly. With your gift of $25 we can transport our boys to and from our mentoring activites for two weeks. A gift of $50 will provide gas for one month. Or, a more generous gift of $100 will provide funds for a field trip. For your convenience, you can click on the following link to make a secure, on-line donation:
