Nearly half the youth in the US are growing up fatherless.

CFC’s Life on Life mentoring project helps these youth, and any youth, by providing a caring, Christian friend that shows up for them.

Center for Champions helps to meet the needs of at-risk youth, fatherless youth and any youth that can benefit from a mentoring relationship.  We do this through 4 program components: Life on Life Mentoring, Rooted Site Mentoring, Rooted Teens and Parent Outreach.

80% of youth at CFC are growing up fatherless.

70% do not see their father on a regular basis.

The need for mentors is great.

Help CFC share the love of Jesus through life on life mentoring relationships.

Our Mission

The mission of Center for Champions is to share the love of Jesus through life on life mentoring relationships where youth and families find hope, values and skills in order to discover God’s plan for their lives and be a positive influence in their communities.

Support Center for Champions

Nearly 25 million children in the U.S. are growing up fatherless. They are more likely to use drugs and alcohol, drop out of school and be incarcerated. You can make a life long difference. Join the life on life mentoring movement today!
