WHAT IS OUR MISSION, VISION & PURPOSE?
The vision of RGOH is to serve as a resource to faith-based and secular organizations in underserved communities, in order to improve educational outcomes, provide essential life skills, and build social and civic responsibility and discipleship in youth.
To improve outcomes by providing enriching tutoring environments to help “at risk” youth succeed. We focus on supporting the needs of the whole child, mind, body, and spirit. We place emphasis on helping students reach their full potential by helping them develop leadership skills, graduate from High School and set long term career goals so they can become productive assets in society. We know that by teaching student’s boundaries, the importance of working hard and committing to being excellent in every aspect of their lives, they can develop qualities that will help them successfully navigate life’s challenges, so their past doesn’t define their potential and future success.
Our Mission is designed to support our Vision by targeting specific youth in our local community, with a goal of establishing both a strong spiritual and educational foundation through our Garden of Hope ministries. The Bible reminds us in Matthew 12:25 (WEB)
vs 25 … “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
So, our goal is to unify our ministries by building on the same foundation and working together to build bridges that develop the talents of each youth, while combining resources, and establishing lasting relationships that positively change the lives of youth, families and others involved with our ministries. Through these partnerships we hope to empower more youth to realize their full potential and understand the value of giving back in the lives of others in their communities, as well.
HOW DO WE HELP OUR YOUTH?
Rebecca’s Garden of Hope is focused on addressing the immediate and long-term needs of youth in communities across the country that need an extra helping hand. Through the efforts, resources, and support of various individuals and organizations, our objective is to improve outcomes for our students by providing enriching tutoring environments to help more young people succeed.
HOW DO WE REACH MORE YOUTH?
In addition to working with youth we also train churches and organizations across the country to provide structured learning environments using the ‘Rebecca’s Garden of Hope’s’ free toolkit. The resources available through Rebecca’s Garden of Hope offer each new start-up the support necessary to organize, run and grow their ministry. Revitalization of churches and organizations in some of these underserved areas, is the key to improving the quality of life for youth and families in these communities. Through the efforts of RGOH and programs like ours, we will continue to break through existing educational and socioeconomic barriers and work to empower more youth to succeed.
