Today's youth and families are at the heart of everything we do at Stronger Than My Father. Over the past few months, I have spent time reflecting on the children we serve in our programs. The young men in our mentoring program, who are fatherless or growing up without a strong father in their lives and the children we are trusted to care for in our before and after school program are so special and they are our future.

Our children matter, and the opportunity to influence their lives is a privilege. We might not be able to change the world, but if we can change the life of even one child, we will try.

"Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us." —Wilma Rudolph
