Our Mission: To provide prevention and intervention services to at-risk delinquent, court adjudicated youth ultimately enhancing the safety of our schools and communities. Our services modify negative behaviors among youth and include skills building workshops for parents. We have been able to reduce arrests, school suspensions, vehicle thefts, and truancy while increasing grades and developing positive attitudes and behaviors. In addition to providing mentoring services, we also have an anti-gang strategy initiative.
Our Philosophy: There is a positive adult in every child waiting to be developed. When we strengthen the youth and family unit, the community will be strengthened.
Our Motto: It takes a “village” to raise a child to be a well-rounded productive adult.
Our Belief: There is a positive adult in every child waiting to be developed.
