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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We seek to serve as a liaison to help at risk youth, Veterans, and socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals gain traction in society and reach their full potential.

As a new 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we seek be a "sponge" of sorts, in developing our outreach programs as well as raising the much needed funds that will enable us to do so.

We are very capable, as we believe our cause will catch ablaze like wildfire, getting the right people on our team to help us succeed. In essence, it will take every effort!

We seek to be as transparent as we can be with the public. At the present time, we occupy a small office in North Houston, but we desire one day to be able to run thrift shops, gyms, etc.

We have secured the basics, such as office space, bank accounts, and most importantly, 501(c)(3) status with the IRS! Next we will work to gain as much rapport with the general public to include, but not limited to those we serve, donors, and other nonprofit, for-profit, and governmental entities.
