A PLACE WHERE POSSIBILITIES EXIST
For at-risk youth in West Charlotte, the pathway to a better life is hard to find. But it’s not impossible. A Better World exists to deliver help and hope to the kids in our community who need them most.
A Better World Was Founded in 2001
by Pastor Ken Gilliard and Forest Hill Church, who identified the need for a positive, educational, after-school program in West Charlotte. When A Better World began, it served eight students two days a week. Thanks to the tireless work of Pastor Ken and his team, the program now serves approximately seventy students five days a week. The kids who stick with A Better World are, at the very least, guaranteed a positive experience and quite possibly one that will change their lives.
