How we change the game...

All over the Big Country, there are kids who face unimaginable daily challenges. Consider being a middle school student who lives with family trauma caused by the addiction of a parent. Or a high school student who has had to become the financial provider for her family on top of trying hard to get her diploma. These scenarios and countless others are very real and have a massive effect on how those kids function in the classroom and in life.
