Heart for the City is a non-profit organization. HFTC is committed to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the children and poorfamilies of the inner-city communities. Special emphasis is placed on low-income neighborhoods of Glendale by creating innovative solutions to the difficult social problems that poor families face daily.
For 30 years the message of hope has gone out to the at risk youth and their families of urban Glendale through Young Life and Heart for the City . Our mission is holistic among the at risk youth and their families. Our plan is to increase community development through raising indigenous leaders.
Need for a new kind of leadership in the inner-cities
There is a need for a new kind of leadership in the inner cities - a need for men and women who are teaching and demonstrating by example the kind of character and values that bring purpose to life and positive direction to children, teens and families.
The need for role models
Inner-city children, teens and families need role models from their own ethnic background, who have experienced similar situations, and who can give them hope, motivation, and courage to live for something above and beyond the lure of a life of crime or dependency. The ethnic urban leader who will have the greatest positive influence in his/her own community is the person who is a healthy role model - both morally and spiritually - and who will "roll up his/her sleeves" and become personally involved in the lives of those around them.
Our goal is to enhance and develop personal, family and business relationships. To strengthen the spiritual foundation upon which men and women can build as they make a positive impact in their communities and families. Positive programs include:
|GED Classes||Computer Classes||Job Development|
This vision is about building and rebuilding lives. In order for true and lasting change to occur in our communities, we must begin to rebuild positive value systems by assisting individuals and families in regaining a purpose in life. Solving problems in our communities must begin with the individual. Sound character, constructive attitudes, and traditional value systems need to be established one by one. Mentoring teens is an important part of this ministry to AZ poorfamilies.
