Build Strong Children Than Repair Broken Men
“It’s easier to build strong children than repair broken men.” – Frederick Douglas
This statement is so true and we see it everyday in our work. Children start off with a light and innocence that comes natural to them. Over time we see life experiences can dim that light and taint their innocence.
As parents and community leaders it is our job to protect our children but sometimes due to our trauma and or life experiences we can cause unintended brokenness in our children we are trying to protect them from.
The beautiful thing is we can always make adjustments and improve as parents and community leaders.
The goal is to equip and empower our young people while they’re young so when they become adults they’re in better emotional, mental, spiritual, financial, and or physical positions than we are in.
We were never meant to do all that is required alone. The Yunion loves supporting youth and families. If you have a young person that needs support or knows a family that has a young person that needs support please feel free to contact us. (313) 870-9771 or www.theyunion.org
