Mission

OUR MISSION:


Our Mission is to instill hope, while providing opportunities for growth and change for all members of the family. To implement our Mission, we will use a three-stage community intervention program geared towards assisting families who struggle with issues such as affordable housing, quality education for their children, sustainable employment, and safe and secure recreational activities. In many of our low-income neighborhoods, our children face the harsh realities of growing up in single parent homes that lack the necessary supports to maintain a family.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

With our new program titled “Operation TakeBack" we plan to do exactly that, which is take back our communities, our lands, our homes, our youth, and our families. With that being said, there are so many issues that families face across a lifetime, and these exact issues have been generational curses since before our arrival. Our history is imbedded in our youth through negative connotations, and imagery. Our children are born into a world that does not give them the equal opportunity towards success in the following areas.
1: Employment
2: Education
3: Housing
4: Healthy living/environment
Not only that, the opportunity for progression is also taken away when our families are separated due to incarceration, poverty, foster care, homelessness, severe health and a number of other things. With this information being well-known across the US, and also abroad, our coalition of organizations are on a mission to provide initiatives that will solve the issues mentioned above.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our Mission is to instill hope, while providing opportunities for growth and change for all members of the family. To implement our Mission, we will use a three-stage community intervention program geared towards assisting families who struggle with issues such as affordable housing, quality education for their children, sustainable employment, and safe and secure recreational activities.
