With the Skills Day programs we provide an opportunity for boys living in foster care group homes to spend some time with positive role models, and learn skills or character traits that foster and support success. The Launch Pad program will provide a stable living situation that will be paired with life training and mentor support.
The prayer is that the young men in our programs will leave with the understanding of the importance of strong character, self-reliance and personal accountability. We believe that through the love and support provided by our programs, the boys will be able to develop an identity that supports personal responsibility and success, and then become an asset to their communities.
In the book of John 14:18, Jesus said to his followers, " I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." Raising Arizona's Men is about ordinary people keeping this extraordinary promise.
Renee and Randy have created a family with RAM that is nothing short of inspirational as they show these boys month after month, that they were created on purpose, for a purpose.
The impact RAM has on these young men’s lives is beyond measure. There is so much dedication and love on the part of Renee, Randy and the volunteers who support them. Hearing story after story of the hope, new found purpose and pure joy these boys experience is truly astounding.
It's amazing to witness first hand the love and compassion that Renee and Randy show these boys. They are truly dedicated to their growth and development which has inspired me to grow in my walk as well. I'm grateful to witness their unwavering generosity and commitment.
