Mission Statement

Our mission is to encourage children and their families, to engage with each other educationally, socially, and through spiritual participation. Southwest Glen Mission is an all-inclusive mission. As a result of Southwest Glen Mission involvement on site, the program participant’s grades have improved, juvenile criminal activity has been reduced and gang related activities at the complex have decreased. Our overall goal is to have each apartment resident understand their purpose through sharing commonalities and their own life experiences.
