Think back on your childhood. To that coach, teacher or neighbor that made an impact on your life. You know their name. You can remember the conversations you had like it was yesterday. And their voice is still in your head, helping you to stay on a positive path.
Absent for many youth, especially those that are incarcerated, is that person. The person that invests in their life and shows them unconditional love – and even tough love – under any circumstance.
Nineveh would not exist without the unconditional support of individuals and businesses. Read below to learn how you can make a difference in the lives of our homies. Better yet, fill out our volunteer application and we’ll be in touch.
