Our Areas of Service


We value education as a key component for living a healthier and more prosperous life. Our education and youth development programs provide young people with the critical skills they need to excel academically, avoid at-risk behavior and become engaged members in their communities. Tutoring, college preparation, and leadership development are some of the many educational advancement tools offered.


We are committed to building community wealth through ownership. Our Entrepreneurship Center's M3 Model (Money, Market, & Management) helps small business owners access the tools needed to grow and develop their business. We provide technical assistance, business management training, and lending solutions. 


We are committed to strengthening the family unit by promoting economic self-sufficiency. Through training, career building, and job placement services, we help equip individuals with tools needed to enter or re-enter the workforce. Our Center for Working Families offers a full range of essential economic resources for low-income residents to help them succeed in the workforce, stabilize their finances and build assets.


We strive to build a stronger, safer community for the children and families we serve. Through our community justice programs, our youth learn the value of social responsibility. We use a variety of methods including the restorative justice model to engage youth and community in critical conversations regarding our day-to-day interactions. 


We are dedicated to building thriving communities through strong economic infrastructure. Our housing programs offer families long-term, sustainable solutions that focus on building assets through savings and homeownership. Our wealth accumulation services include financial literacy education, budgeting, credit counseling, homeownership, foreclosure prevention, and loan modification.


We believe that health and wellness education is the key to optimal growth for our children and families. Our health programs are designed to ensure that preventative care advances and vital health resources reach those who need them most.
