The children we are working with have little chance of stopping the poverty cycle without the continuous support we provide. Many are in such difficult situations and it is tough for them to see a way out. Although there is a way, with strong support, guidance and determination to strive for a better life. We offer one of one mentoring, tutoring and ongoing relationships. We may be the only steady person in their lives. We are seeing the difference we are making. We teach Leadership, Team building, honesty, kindness, respect toward each other and we open the opportunities for our Youth.
My name is Kristin and I am the Founder and CEO of a 501c3 - Hearts of Mercy. (EIN): 471170969 We are located in Barnegat, NJ. We have been very active in our community in building relationships with the families in the very low-income areas, focusing on the children.
We offer free afterschool Tutoring, Mentoring, Reading Buddies and sponsor many children in Sports other activities throughout the year. We too sponsor many children in Extracurricular activities, such as dance, gymnastics, school bands and private lessons if the opportunity arises. As we grow, we would love to expand our programs and join forces with many other local organizations in the art field! We are continuing to open opportunities for these children and stand as advocates. We strive to transform their mindset and realize who they CAN become!
As we know and clearly see, students we are working side by side with have very little access to opportunities surrounding them due to no computers, internet, transportation along with the guidance needed to find their own strengths, talents and gifts.
I would like to learn more about ways we, Hearts of Mercy, can partner with you to close the divide and Gap with the underprivileged students we are working with. We are a 'rippling effect’ in the lives of these children.
