This year, Catholic Charities’ Cornerstone Kids Mentoring program  is supported by the Fore!Kids Foundation.  An initiative of Cornerstone Builders, Cornerstone Kids connects children of incarcerated parents with volunteer mentors. Through one-on-one activities and group meetings, mentors provide support and encouragement for at-risk youth that promotes trust, confidence, personal growth and positive thinking. In addition to the mentoring component, this program coordinates monthly bus trips to Louisiana’s detention facilities for families with an incarcerated relative.

Since 1958, the Fore!Kids Foundation has raised money to fund children’s service organizations, like Catholic Charities,  through golf events  like the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  A 501(c)(3) corporation, Fore!Kids has raised over $28 million to date; providing healthcare, education, and hope for over 200,000 children each year.
