About Us

Leading the Youth since 2010

We are passionate about empowering our neighborhood youth into reaching their potential despite the odds against them. Our children face a multitude of challenges including but not limited to: poverty, hunger, domestic violence, abuse, trauma, fatherlessness (nearly 80% of our kids lack a stable male role model), violent crime, drugs, gangs, lack of emotional, academic and social support. We take a holistic approach to support our children by instilling education, mentors, life skills, leadership opportunities and financial guidance.
