We have a laser focus on our end goal – families that thrive, individuals who gain self-respect and self-determination, and children who will carry on the generational torch of defining a positive future.
Our mission is to help vulnerable individuals and families extricate themselves from the grip of poverty and begin living the life of dignity they deserve. We believe that everyone is capable of doing great things if they have access to programs and
services designed to provide the tools, education and targeted support needed to shape a positive and sustainable future for themselves, their families and their communities.
We envision that the neighborhoods we serve will emerge as an example of profound transformation; that its residents will redefine their role in society as its leaders; that their children will grow to be responsible adults; and that our ambitious goals will yield remarkable results.

▪ Innovation – We are never satisfied with status quo. If there’s a better way of doing
something, we do it. I there’s a new approach we haven’t tried, we’ll test it. As needs
evolve, so do our solutions.
▪ Solutions – We have a suite of solutions that we are eager to implement, but we know
that patience and attention to the basics are most important. At the core of our programs
is a center where girls, boys, single mothers, and high school drop outs can learn a trade.
In a constantly changing economy, trades provide jobs that are not going away, and they
have become more important than ever!

the future of the communities we serve; and to ourselves as passionate agents of change!

them have simply given up hope. We cannot allow this to go on. Among even the most
vulnerable, there is absolute reason for hope. We instill that hope.
▪ Integrity – Trust, honesty, fairness, transparency and respect are the principles that shape
the work we do every day.
