Our name was inspired by Psalm 18:2, which says, "The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer." Fortress exists to provide a safe, fun, nurturing place for children in our neighborhood, but it's much more than that. Our programs are very intentionally designed to bring hope to the lives of at-risk youth by providing resources that will help them break the cycle of generational poverty. Our goal is to IGNITE spiritually, ENGAGE relationally, and EQUIP academically.

Our logo tells that story. Do you see the word FORT spelled out within it? The "F" represents our building, which resembles a medieval fortress. The "O" represents academics, the "R" represents relationships, and the "T" represents faith. Each of our programs is designed to meet one or more of these needs for the children we love and serve.
