Higher Ground Youth & Family Services

Higher Ground is a mentoring program for youth and families living in at risk communities. Our youth are dealing with all the crimes of poverty including gangs, drugs and human trafficking. Living in disadvantaged communities limits choices so the goal of HG is to level the playing field for these youth and their future. Our mission is to facilitate exploration and discovery of life's possibilities through mentorship, as we expand purpose and possibilities for youth and their families.
