Mission Statement

iBelieve is ordinary people who believe they can make a difference in their community by reaching out to children and families - one person at a time.

Description

HOW do we do it?

We build partner relationships on the foundation of trust, service and responsibility by following through on what we say we are going to do - these partners work together to address local needs and advocate for the community

By gathering information and connecting resources to the people and agencies that need them

We recruit and train caring adult mentors and volunteers to engage with local schools, youth serving groups, and individual kids and families

We train people to effectively reach kids involved in risky behaviors like alcohol, drugs, gangs, violence, dropping out of school, etc.

WHO is iBelieve?

iBelieve is a large and diverse group representing more than 40 organizations, including law enforcement, the U.S. Attorney, public and private schools, colleges and universities, youth serving groups, media, mental health, medical, nonprofit and faith based organizations, community leaders, city officials, businesses, crisis response, and conflict resolution groups.

Our vision is to open and maintain lines of communication, look for ways to collaborate, share information and resources, and ultimately maximize all our efforts to do the most good.

What is iBelieve doing right now?

Our community-building theories and approaches are being tested in a pilot project in Southwest Little Rock. Many area churches, schools, businesses, and community leaders have been enlisted, outreach initiated, and projects implemented. Lessons are being learned and the processes refined. Once tested and proven, what we achieve here can be replicated elsewhere.
