approaching life with a goal oriented mindset 


FTN strives to find individuals who believe there is a better life for themselves. So much so, a better life becomes their goal, their glimmer of hope. 

Maintaining a Positive Mindset 


Many of our youth (Arrows) go through unspeakable hardships. FTN aims to use the words "I can" or "it is possible" with our Arrows to remind them that anything is possible with time, effort and a growth mindset. 

having a life of stability 


FTN is here for the long run with our Arrows. The new Bow & Arrow Mentorship Program begins with our youth when they are in 4th grade and plans to stay in their journey until they graduate high school.

Bow & Arrow Mentorship Program 

We are excited to announce the launch of our Bow & Arrow Mentorship Program in 2021! This will be a continuity program for children suffering from a houseless environment that provides activities, events and most importantly, mentorship!
