"No.31 Division officers have worked closely with this charity through the Foundation For Life Community Action Program, which actively supports the No. 31 Division weekly Faith Patrol, youth mentoring, and the Community Safety Walk involving city officials. These affiliations clearly demonstrate how closely the Foundation For Life Family Church works with other organizations within their community to improve the area in which they live."

No. 31 Division
"Foundation For Life's objective is to provide life building resources... Foundation For Life also reaches out to the community with their practical skill building and leadership training. They have come to WKNC with self esteem programs for our female population. The women's group - including immigrants, sex trade workers and substance users - respond positively to the discussion time and to Colleen's empathetic warmth which leads them to ask questions about the meaning of their lives. This linking has led to WKNC people finding opportunities to volunteer in Foundation For Life's tutoring program, which helps them see themselves as a needed part of the community."
