Xander has been enrolled in our Friends of the Children-Charlotte program for a few years and is really beginning to see the benefits. Having a stable, male role-model helped him build a more positive outlook on life. The 2-Gen approach of the program provided Xander’s mom with job resources, resulting in her finding stable work and better able to support her family. The social events provide a positive environment and support for the entire family. Xander’s growth mindset led to him helping in his uncle’s business over the summer and learning new skills.
