ADOPT A SCHOOL INITIATIVE
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.”
