Our Dare to Dream

64111-

"S" is a 20 year old male. Goals he wishes to work towards include finances, budgeting, and social skills. In a mentor, S would like someone who loves to talk, likes to go to the library and McDonalds. Someone who likes TV shows, drama, and anything entertaining. He would like someone who would enjoy going to baseball and hockey games. He would like someone who enjoys going out and doing things, but also enjoys just hanging out or doing things in the community, and just chilling.

Dare to Dream is an opportunity to individually serve an aged-out or at risk to age out foster youth (ages ranging from 11-21). Our mentors are advocates, coaches, role models, valued friends, and available resources. The heart of the Dare to Dream program is walk alongside youth as they navigate through life's challenges. We know you need the wisdom, advice, encouragement, and community that mentors can provide. Mentors meet practical and emotional needs as well as provide guidance through developmental milestones. The hope is for youth to be engaged, feel supported and equipped to navigate life. As a youth enrolled in the program, you commit to meeting with your mentor every other week, set goals, and work together with your mentor to achieve your dreams. These relationships will hopefully last a lifetime, but the program is a year commitment.

The Dare to Dream Program is really a conduit to become a mentor or friend, who offers love, motivation & encouragement. The heart of our program is connection and relationship.

Mission Statement

The KCMO Angels​ mission is to walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.

Description

KCMO Angels is a local chapter of National Angels, a foster care non-profit that was created to help empower children & build sustainable foster homes. We are a community of people that walk alongside foster children & their caretakers by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building & mentorship. Our solution to the foster care crisis is the Love Box program and Dare to Dream Program. Our program(s) utilize a trauma-informed, wrap-around service model that strengthens relationships between foster families, foster youth & bio-families. Our volunteers are everyday people that sponsor a local foster family with monthly care packages meeting practical needs while spending quality time with the whole family building positive community. They are changing the way kids & parents experience the foster care system. At KCMO Angels we believe in the power of love & the value of friendship and positive role models for kids in foster care. We want to connect people passionate about making a difference in the foster care community to our most vulnerable children that have experience neglect & abuse and the selfless parents who care for them.
