Springfield City Youth Mission (SCYM) provides many youth programs to support and engage youth in healthy activities. SCYM now serves over 600 elementary and middle school students city-wide each year, with the help of more than 300 volunteers dedicated to “helping kids crush the odds with the love of God.”

CHF provided a grant of $6,250 for the GirlPower after school program for middle school girls. The GirlPower program teaches and emphasizes the importance of physical exercise, healthy food choices, stress management and communication skills.
