Because Hope Doesn't Stop with a Pandemic.

On River Time campers group 2 at Grand Tetons 2019

You could do anything with your time and resources, but you choose to make a difference in the lives of others. Why?
Perhaps you remember a defining moment in your own life, an experience that set you on your ultimate path. Maybe you overcame personal hardship. We all have moments that define us. At On River Time, we seek to provide kids who have experienced abuse and neglect with a life changing moment, an opportunity for a course correction, to help these children understand they are not defined by their past. They can define their future.
Teens from four children’s homes rely on the programming of On River Time. In addition to our all-expense paid fly fishing camps, we provide college and career scholarships, and this year we are expanding our services even more to serve recent high school graduates, no longer living in their group children’s homes, to help them transition to independence in college, career, and their new lives ahead… one filled with hope.
We believe hope doesn’t stop with a pandemic. If anything we need more of it.

While we are unable to gather for our annual Casting Hope event in Birmingham, the work we do is too important to cancel.
