Your support helps us foster relationships with and infuse hope in 150 kids and their families each and every day. Because of YOU, Fortress kids are growing up to be leaders, mentors, college graduates, and wonderful parents. It starts when they're kids; it continues when they return to enroll their own children. That's a powerful testimony! 

We need your help. Please consider becoming a monthly Friend of Fortress. Every  dollar helps. Our kids are counting on Fortress. Fortress is counting on you!
