The Mission: Prevention Education

THE MISSION: PREVENTION EDUCATION

As a charitable organization we provide support services, training, and direct counseling to enhance the quality of life for youths and adults. We believe the core values essential to our success in the community are integrity, respect, and social responsibility.

The Inspiring Girl’s Hope Program is designed for girls ages 13 to 17. Our girls participate in a twice monthly 14 week program. We mentor and work with the girls to teach them the importance of academics, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, etiquette, resisting negative peer pressure, and the importance of self respect, respect for the community, and other peers.

This program offers support specifically developed for survivors of domestic violence. Victims are provided with empowerment tools, including entrepreneurship and financial literacy training, (PPO’s) Personal Protection Orders, resources, referrals, and encouragement through open and honest dialogue, in a non-judgmental group setting. The victims learn to overcome feelings of hopelessness in their hearts, minds and souls. We offer counseling for inner healing.

Our parental support services is designed for single mothers, and promote the development of healthy and life-affirming values by increasing knowledge and strengthening positive interactions. The services include cultural and spiritually sensitive approaches to strengthen the family unit, including group sessions for these women. Entrepreneurship and financial literacy training is available, as well as, other resources and referrals.

One donation touches the lives

of many needy people.

Thank you in advance for your support!
