Mentoring program hopes to change shocking statistics
OKLAHOMA CITY– Some shocking statistics are causing a group of Oklahomans to act. A study showed that there are over 27,000 children in Oklahoma who have at least one parent behind bars.
Also, over one-third of Oklahoma children live in a home with a single parent. Organizers say having a great adult role model can be a life-changing experience.
Now a successful mentoring program is looking for a few good men and women to step up and make a difference.
Chad Missildine, a pastor at LifeChurch, stopped by our studios with first-hand information about a program that is reaching out to some of the youngest Oklahomans.
