Our goal as an organization is the be a community center that is 100% supported by its community. Through generous support and donations we are able to provide a safe environment, activities, and meals to our youth and families for FREE.
Why your help matters...
Through mentorship and supportive programming, we have been able to build solid relationships and activities in creative arts, wellness, recreation, life and leadership skills development, college and trade exploration, suicide and drug prevention to over 50 youth and families on a weekly basis, but it is not enough. Our volunteers, mentors and staff have found that our youth and families need constant support, texting, calling and even meeting with youth and families throughout the week.
Many of the youth we serve are often referred to us, or join us from mental health centers, juvenile court diversion and youth service organizations, because there are not enough safe, and supportive places for youth to be themselves, try new things, and get the necessary resources to get through their day. Without this funding, our youth will continue to be caught in the tension between negative activities, and environments, leading to negative outcomes, while expecting to master daily skills, and obtain positive outcomes, without the positive environment to make that happen.
