We are a company that is moving towards a collaboration of   human service professionals and volunteers working together; to support young people and the diverse problems that’s confronting them. 


Our Mission: C4R, INC. mission is to reach our youth through positive and productive events and programs that build lasting relationships that will strengthen our youth. 

An Idea was born

Connections 4 Real, Inc was founded in 2010 as a result of young men having a lack of positive mentorship in Vance County for at risk and trouble teens. C4R, Inc. introduced and enrolled over 12 young men in Vance County between the ages of 13-16 into the male mentoring program “Young Men of Standards”. This program was to provide group mentorship, activities, and to serve as a positive outlet. Our goal is to provide a continuum of prevention, intervention and services for youth and their families who are at risk, in crisis or who have emotional or behavioral problems.

As C4R, Inc  work to help youth build their skills and resiliency, we have defined fundamental principles that guide its work. At the Core of all our programs are eight driving principles.
