We help passionate people offer HOPE for wounded students™

You work with kids every day. And for you, it's not just a job. You signed up for this because you wanted to make a difference in the lives of young people; to positively influence them like a couple of special people influenced you. 

But there's a problem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So many kids are beyond "at-risk" -- they are wounded. There has been trauma in their lives, sometimes unending trauma. Their woundings often lead them to struggles at school and in society. You desperately want to help these wounded youth....To give them as many chances as possible to succeed while still meeting the needs of the other children in your charge.

We are Hope 4 The Wounded.

A movement of passionate people like you who have daily contact with wounded kids. We are helping teachers, school administrators, and countless other leaders working with youth learn a new way to understand wounded students, to connect with them, and to spark transformation in their lives.

This can still happen in today’s schools and communities. In fact, it is happening. We have the resources you need to do it. Resources to help you be a catalyst for transformation both in the lives of wounded students and in the place where you serve.
