Connection

Our program of connection

This initiative is our donate and restoration shoe program. We receive shoe donations from community members, train youth on how to restore them, and follow that up by giving the shoes to those in need. This program has allowed us to develop deep connections with community members in a tangible way.

Community Events

Our program of awareness

From toy drives and coat drives, to fashion shows and food giveaways…. We have been fortunate to create a way to encourage and allow community members to become involved in our initiative of service. These fun times have become a yearly ritual to many community members looking for ways to get involved and give back.

Urban Mentoring

Guiding our next generations

We believe in transformation, not transaction. Many youth become subjects of exposure, or lack there of. As a result of this realization we focus on assuring that we develop direct relationships with youth where they have a comfortable space for growth & exposure in a way that is realistic and achievable.
