My pastor, Dale Jenkins at New Hope Worship Center, always says that the greatest investment we can make is into that of the next generation. While it is inevitable that they will one day think they know better than us, and will undoubtedly believe they are much smarter than the generation that comes after them, it is our duty now, in this time, to care for and nurture them the best we can.

One of the things I love about Cabarrus County is that I see investments being made all around us. That’s why we decided this issue should be all about those who are taking that extra step to make sure the next generation isn’t left behind.

We talked with the great people at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cabarrus County and the Cabarrus Boys & Girls Club, receiving a firsthand look at the way these organizations are not only helping to care for children, but also have a hand in raising them into adulthood.

We also learned more about adoption, whether it be private or through the Department of Social Services. There are numerous children in Cabarrus County that deserve to grow up in a happy and safe home, whether it be with their biological parents or a family seeking a child to love. My mother-in-law was adopted by her biological aunt, and I am so thankful that she loved her niece so much that she made her a daughter.

There is always a child in our community that is desperate for someone to take time with them – if only just to play or help them with homework. We can certainly step out of our own busy lives to make a difference as a volunteer, mentor or financial benefactor. If we’re not investing in the children of today, how can we expect a better tomorrow?

Sincerely,

Jason Huddle
