More Info

Before opening our doors we were blessed with a family to support during the holidays. The mother who was in the hospital with Covid-19 experiencing several complications, leaving her oldest child to step in her place and care for the other 5 siblings. GOD set aside provisions that we were able to support them during this time of uncertainty. While in the hospital their rent became due, and their food became low and we were able to step in and provide assistance. It is families and neighbors like these that we strive to support.

Being able to assist this family has led us to a journey of supporting others and while doing so we came to realize that there are several things that we need in order to do this efficiently and effectively. These things are; software, staffing, equipment, supplies, resources. 

Our organization supplies employment opportunities to those who have lost their jobs during this unstable time. The biggest portion of funding will be used to support our employees and purchasing the required software. Not only will we be able to help our communities by assisting them with services we will also be gaining employment opportunities. Keeping track of each family and neighbor consist of a very necessary software program needed to hold the information gathered and secured. Integration software will also be needed in order to achieve accurate and timely response support.

 Our scholarship fund to support low to moderate income families and neighbors will allow some students and adult learners returning to complete their education the ability to attend university or trade schools and gain job skills necessary to empower the communities for sustainability and growth. 

Our entrepreneurship program will open doors to area where businesses are closing doors. The veteran and military programs will ensure that those that serve and protect us will be served with job security, home security, entrepreneurship opportunities and support from their communities.  The elderly program will not just feed a neighbor for a day but offer funds to feed them for a lifetime and support them in paying for prescription medicines.

 We will work hard to serve those that have worked hard for all of us. No one gets left behind because #YOUARESUM1.
