45 Years of Dedication
For over four decades, Futures for Children has encouraged American Indian students to graduate high school and pursue a post-secondary education. Unfortunately, the high school graduation rate for American Indian students is one of the lowest in the nation. The numbers can be overwhelming and staggering, but we believe that one-by-one we can help change the lives of thousands of American Indian children.
Making a Difference
At Futures for Children, over 95% of the students involved in the Friendship/Mentorship Program graduate high school, with many going onto a post-secondary education. We are making a difference and we would not be able to do it without your dedication to these children.
Futures for Children would like to thank all who attended our 45 Year Anniversary Open House celebration. Your participation helped make this a successful friend-raising event. We would also like to thank performers singer/songwriter, Shelley Morningsong along with Native dancer, Fabian Fontenelle, and The Black Eagle Drum Group for delighting our guests with their lively music and dance. Additionally, we are grateful to photographer, Bob Smith for donating his time and talent, caterer, Rene Sandia for providing delicious food for the occasion, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department for their donation and attendance, and all others who helped make this event so enjoyable.
