Need Help
Across the United States, a recognizable need has developed for providing outreach services for individuals and families. While the obstacles that residents must face can be seen as immeasurable, some of the most pressing issues facing individuals today are the outbreaks of poor scholastic development, unhealthy lifestyles, and juvenile delinquency. This is especially evident in underprivileged, low-income populations.

There is a need for programs that seek to reverse these disturbing trends. Numerous studies have demonstrated that programs similar to the ones offered by SapiBon Foundation, Inc. make a real difference for children, families, and the community. The Afterschool Alliance cites that 6.5 million individuals benefiting from mentorship and other life skill programs offer robust evidence of their value. However, millions of other individuals have no programs available to them. Right now, more than 14 million teenagers and young adults spend time unsupervised by a parent or other adult. Studies show that regular participation in high-quality and encouraging programs is linked to significant gains in standardized test scores and improved work habits, social skills, and overall behavior.” The Harvard Family Research Project asserts that the individual development outcomes associated with structured, encouraging programs are:

  • Decreased behavioral problems
  • Improved social and communication skills
  • Improved relationships with others including peers, teachers, and parents
  • Increased community involvement and broadened worldview
  • Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
