Our Programs


Encouraging Education

Year around, we offer free backpacks and school supplies to families in need. Each summer we celebrate back to school with a block party where we give away free high quality backpacks and school supplies relevant to each child's grade level.


Food Pantry

We are here for the community on Wednesday's from 10am until Noon with FREE fresh groceries to prepare at home. We are also available by appointment. Just use the contact sheet below or give us a call. 


In My Mother Shoes

Join us for bi-monthly workshops led by clinical professionals. This is a safe collaborative environment where we have productive conversations about the barriers between mother's and their daughters. These barriers may include relationships strained due to generational norms, loss of physical time together, mental health conditions and many others. 


eMANcipate ~ Freedom to Live

This program is critical to the success of Men reentering society from incarceration and the stabilization of their families. In monthly workshops, programs include reintroducing them to the home, preparing them for employment and gaining proper life skills to sustain the household and clinical & instructional classes required to encourage and sustain the participant and their family.
