Sacred Ground founder Mary Long with Dr. Tony Evans                       at a National Church Adopt a School training.
Sacred Ground Ministries' "Adopt A School Initiative" is inspired            by the National Church Adopt a School Initiative put forth by                  Dr. Tony Evans. Under this model, Sacred Ground seeks                                   to develop a local model through adopting public schools for the purpose of empowering the lives of young people through student mentorship, family support, and wraparound community services .
Sacred Ground works to transform our communities by bringing community resources and institutions together to serve our young people and their families  for long-term social change.  In the words       of Dr. Tony Evans,  “We see our work as building our community         from the bottom up. Starting with individuals we  can change a thought and change a life. Change lives, then transform families. Transform families and change communities and the rest is history.”
