The Beginning: 2006
Believe in Me has been dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of marginalized youth since 2006. Our history as an organization began with the Morning Star Boys' Ranch Foundation, which was founded to raise money for the Morning Star Boys' Ranch, a group home providing shelter, education, health care, and emotional and spiritual support for troubled boys. In 2009, our name changed to Morning Star Foundation.
2006 - Present
The Next 10 Years
The next decade saw us expanding our reach to include serving girls and other charitable activities that benefit children and young people in need. This included supporting local organizations offering mentorship programs, educational assistance, and general support for underserved children.
Believe in Me: 2021
In 2021 we announced a new platform designed to provide even more comprehensive support and resources for marginalized youth. We officially changed our name to Believe in Me, aligning with the organization's new vision to help every kid develop the self-confidence they need to succeed.
Today, Believe in Me has become a leading advocate for the equity of all young people across the country. Our continued commitment is to use our platform to positively impact the lives of children and teens from all backgrounds by providing them with access to programs that will help them reach their full potential. We believe every child deserves a chance at a successful life no matter their circumstances.
