Our Vision

Our vision is to see communities where inner-city youth of single parent homes are empowered educationally, emotionally, and financially creating a strong foundation for their family to enjoy active lifestyles and experience academic as well as long-term success. 

The purpose and vision of our foundation is heavily committed to our mentorship program designed for inner city youth ages 14-18, to instill confidence and empower our youth by focusing on academic achievement, financial literacy, health and wellness: both physically and mentally, and communication skills.

Our family foundation has adopted a Boys & Girls Club for the last 5 years where we create a Magical Christmas Celebration for the 150 active kids that are members of the Club. The kids are given a “Wish List” to fill out what they want for Christmas and through the support of our community and community partners; we surprise them with their “Wish List” gifts at a magical Christmas party.
