Son of a Saint

Son of a Saint

Founded in 2011 by Bivian “Sonny” Lee, III, Son of a Saint enhances the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, life skills development, exposure to constructive experiences and formation of peer relationships. Fatherless homes produce 85% of youth in prison, 71% of high school dropouts and 75% of male patients in chemical abuse centers. We work with boys on an individual level from ten to 18 years old, offering a wide range of services designed to build leaders. This year, our first class of alumni completed their freshman year in college—the first in their families to do so.


We rely on the generosity of individuals and organizations. You can get involved by becoming a donor, mentoring a boy, or becoming a community partner and providing access to enrichment activities.
