Our Founder and Director
"It all began when I noticed that we had nothing positive for our children; grades dropping for lack of homework help, poor clothing attire, children needing food, parents dropping kids off at places that were not safe. I prayed that some help would come. I never thought that God would lead me to start a program to assist the community and surrounding area."
