It Starts With Us
We are creating leaders, strengthening character, seeking to end violence and generational poverty in urban areas.
Some of our greatest assets reside in blighted neighborhoods. Our goal is to nurture these human resources and provide them with positive and consistent adult interactions. We focus on building their self-esteem, equipping them with the skills necessary to make appropriate life choices and exposing them to new opportunities. We cannot do this alone.
