We are committed to providing high quality intervention programs and community resources for children, youth, and families in the areas of education, health and wellness, and the arts.

Low-income communities often experience limited resources which result in high crime rates, increased levels of childhood obesity, low academic achievement, and a lack of cultural capital.  These factors can make it difficult for residents to rise out of poverty and become productive citizens in society.

Our goal is to create pathways of opportunity for the region’s most vulnerable areas, in an effort to improve community conditions and effectively help children and families reach their full potential.
