Making A Difference For A Lifetime
Before making the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, Sergeant Henry Prendes dreamed of establishing a summer camp for inner-city youth. The fulfillment of that dream, Henry’s Place, will be much more than just a “fun summer camp”. Our goal is to provide life-changing experiences, instruction, and opportunities to at-risk and underprivileged children and youth — experiences that will equip them to succeed in facing the challenges of growing up in the inner- city.
Did you know ~
- That youth living in disadvantaged urban areas are at greater risk for smoking, trying alcohol and using drugs?
- That high school dropout rates are 12-15% worse in central city urban areas than in suburban, town, and rural areas and that high school dropouts are 2 times as likely to be unemployed, over 3 times as likely to get arrested, 6 times more likely to be an unwed single parent, and 7 times more likely to be on government assistance?
- That urban crime rates are about 3 times greater than rural crime rates and urban violent crime is about 4 times greater?
- That 98% of gang members are either dead, in prison or maimed for life?While the above facts are alarming, together we can make a difference!
