To simply state it, our mission is to provide education, awareness, and action. You can’t have change of any sort if there is no awareness, and no awareness without education.
Our goals will change based on the needs of the population we serve. That being said, the immediate need is for communities to understand that it is ok to get help. For this to happen we need to establish relationships with community leaders, pillars, religious houses of worship of all kinds, and businesses.
We need to keep families safe and together. Some families need secured emergency housing. Many of the shelters out there cater to women. What happens when you have a 16 year old son? You may not be able to secure emergency housing because of his sex and age. What happens if you have more than one son? What if you are an older man seeking help from an abusive spouse? Our goal is to provide housing that keep families together that are in a position to be able to support one another.
Who We Are
We are our brother’s keeper, we are our weakest link. This is why we need to make an effective change. I’ve been personally frustrated how we have become a society where we sit back and wait for something to happen, for something to change.
This is not the America I grew up in. This is not the America my parents immigrated to. We are too hungry, to broke, too frustrated with being stuck in positions we feel we have no way out from. This is where we come in.
We are volunteers and community activists. We are your neighbors and co-workers. We are a group of people coming together to fill a need. We are in our infancy, and we hope to make a positive impact in our neighborhoods and communities. No only will we work to build our communities stronger, we will do so with full transparency across the board.
Money. We all need it – especially organizations and programs that provide outreach. Questions that I have before I personally donate a cent of my money is where the money will go and how will the money be used. We know the saying, “follow the money”, do organizations provide the transparency you want in knowing were every cent of your money is going? That is what sets us apart. You have full control of where your money will go.
Would you like to help keep our lights on, so our volunteers can work on grant applications? Would you like to contribute to our emergency shelter program, helping us to rescue victims of physical abuse? Would you like to contribute to our consumer legal fund, helping fund attorney or legal fees for victims we help; or would you like us to apply it to wherever its needed most. Any way you donate, you will receive a breakdown of how each penny was spent, and the impact you had on your community.
Giving isn’t only in the form of financial contributions, we’re always looking for help.
