Making a Difference
Our Mission at E.R.A.S.E. is to mentor, stimulate and encourage each child to develop their educational and networking skills to become more independent. To empower each young mind to envision their dreams, become goal minded, build confidence, and share their success within the community. Teach self-worth and celebrate achievements both big and small.
Since 2013, the E.R.A.S.E. Foundation has continually funded trips to Jefferson City for several hundred at-risk students. The itinerary includes a pool party at the hotel and tours of the state capitol, Supreme Court and Missouri State Highway Patrol headquarters and museum. The tour of the MSHP building is followed by a pizza party with comments by the Colonel and staff members. Every trip includes the opportunity for the students to hear the appreciated life story of several Senators, State Representatives and a Supreme Court Justice.
Established tutoring & mentoring programs, computer labs, reading programs, and life skill classes. E.R.A.S.E also networks with other faith-based groups and businesses to create a sense of awareness with a focus on volunteerism.
Creating a positive, safe haven for our youth and giving them an outlook of hope with a promising future, and developing an environment and community that discourages delinquent behavior and rewards the good.
