Helping kids? It’s logical!
We are committed to improving the lives of children growing up with the challenges of poverty. There’s nothing we won’t do and no place we won’t go in search of the one child who needs us.
There’s real method to our apparent madness and it’s a finely tuned, proprietary CityKidz Logic Model. This guides everything we say and think and do.
In simple terms, it looks like this:
1. We discern God’s lead.
We’re ever mindful that we’re doing God’s work, not our own. We’re responding to a call to meet the needs of vulnerable children wherever they may be. In discerning God’s lead, we immerse ourselves in prayer and contemplation and open our doors to churches who see CityKidz as their mission field.
2. We develop relationships and build great programs.
Our on-site children’s programs and youth mentorship are just some of the many ways we connect with kids week after week… after week for years and years… and years! Supporting all of these great activities are our weekly home visits. These allow us to develop and sustain authentic relationships with children, their families and the communities where they live. We know that change takes time and so we’re committed to our communities for the long haul.
3. We quantify and qualify our success on an ongoing basis.
We practice an evidence-based approach to make sure what we do is making a real difference in children’s lives. We track faith, resiliency and well-being outcomes in our kids and are constantly adapting and innovating our programs to meet kids where they are and give them a truly meaningful and transformative experience.
