A Word From the CEO

On behalf of Save Our Children, I would like to first thank you, the parents, and the community for your outstanding support. I personally would like to thank all the Sponsors and Partners for their time, assistants,love and support. It takes people like you to help change the future. When I started the organization, I did it because,I too was an under privileged kid, very much at- risk. I felt like it was time for me to share my story and my love to these kids, and now with your continious support we can reach those kids, who are strivng for a hands up and not a hands out. Courage is what is takes to stand up and speak! Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart, may God bless you all. Sincerely, Rev. J.D. Roberts
