Mission Statement

The mission of The Malachi Project is to step into the role of a father to children who were born into a fatherless generation. We will impact, equip, and empower those we serve to break out of negative cycles and live a life of salvation, deliverance, identity and purpose founded upon Jesus Christ.

Description

The Malachi Project is structured to address the multi-faceted needs of at-risk children being raised below the poverty level and in single mom households including education, mentoring, counseling, social skills, financial awareness, and spiritual/emotional support. In America, statistics show that children raised in fatherless homes are subject to increasing rates of high school dropout, drug and alcohol addiction, teenage pregnancy, depression/suicide, violent crime, and incarceration. The target group: school-age children K-12 living in this environment.

The educational element of the program is designed to align with the local school's curriculum and provide tutoring at the lowest possible tutor to student ratio to individualize the learning to the children’s current level to close the gap in areas that are lagging. The after-school program offers creative ways of learning to keep kids motivated and excited about learning. The children are often isolated from the broader world and lack vision to see beyond their current circumstances, so mentoring shows them other opportunities for an improved way of life through decision-making and positive reinforcement.
