Why Leaven Kids?

Trapped in a broken system.

Children are growing up in the most heartbreaking circumstances, in your community, with no way out.


It Affects Us All

It may not be on your regular driving route, but what is happening in the most crime-ridden neighborhoods in your area affects the entire community.


Neighborhoods Without Hope

These are neighborhoods where repeated efforts to bring change all seem to become another band-aid, and the people charged with enforcement, education, and care seem powerless.


The Cycle Repeats Itself

Low educational outcomes, violence in the home, crime, drugs, and poor work prospects, all pile up, perpetuating a never-ending cycle.


The Impact On Children

The lasting effects of growing up in these environments guarantee that the cycle will continue, with at-risk children on a predictable path to generational hardship.

Change is Possible!

But well-intentioned, one-off attempts have left these troubled neighborhoods unchanged. With your help, there is a solution that offers real hope for these children and families.

We equip children right where they live, providing them with real skills for a hopeful future.


Reforming the System

Despite many initiatives and efforts to break the cycle, broken systems are only able to make small gains.

Pushing a Positive PR Story

Many leaders work hard to inspire and encourage the community with a hopeful perspective, but they know that it takes more than a good story to deliver the actual skills and experiences that enable people to choose a different future.


Addressing Root Causes

Charities do good work addressing critical needs but only provide a temporary lift that helps in the short-term while still leaving neighborhoods in the same condition. To make a real difference, we focus on addressing the root causes of the problem.

We cannot leave children in a broken system and expect anything to change.

True transformation must be comprehensive, reducing crime, improving educational outcomes, and genuinely making the neighborhood a better place to live. The change has to start where the cycle begins: with children.

What if one simple strategy could create real transformation?

Let us tell you what we've discovered about unlocking a new future for the most crime-ridden neighborhoods.
