Theory of Change

We believe there are simply no shortcuts to any transformation process, especially one that involves obtaining the life skills necessary to successfully navigate through this challenging world. Therefore, we understand at HIM, we must meet people where they are, without judgment, in order to begin the process of change. Through this close interaction, we “unpack” life with each student and teach them the skills they must have in order to be successful.

Through this process, we establish a relationship of trust whereby our students understand that we are motivated by nothing more than to see them succeed in life. This is critical because of the accountability and structure that our program brings. However, it has been our experience that students begin to thrive in this environment of loving accountability to the point they establish a strong belief in themselves. Ultimately, their hopelessness is replaced with an optimistic outlook that they can become what their Creator intended for them to be.
