Impact & Outcomes

The Fountain of Youth provides assistance and support to individuals who are facing the harsh realities of generational poverty. Our participants are driven by an intrinsic desire to improve their lives and the lives of future generations.

In 2021, the Fountain of Youth provided vital support to over 180 participants through a variety of specialized programs, including Partners in Change, RealTalk, and Community in Change. The RealTalk program, in particular, was able to help many of its participants find meaningful employment opportunities and regain custody of their children. Additionally, the program helped participants increase their sense of self-worth, self-confidence, and knowledge of community resources by over 20%.

The Fountain of Youth offers a range of services in addition to our curricula, including assistance in finding higher-paying jobs, one-on-one mentoring, and individual goal-setting sessions. We also provide engaging educational activities for the children of participants, ensuring that parents can focus on their own growth and development.

At the heart of the Fountain of Youth’s mission is a desire to help participants examine their own experiences with poverty and explore the issues within their community that contribute to it. Through this process, participants are able to gain valuable insights from one another and work together to break the cycle of poverty.

Progress is measured through various metrics, including participation, sustained employment, and enrollment in educational opportunities. Data is continually being tracked to assess the effectiveness of the Fountain of Youth’s programs and services.
