What We Offer


“A PRODUCT OF THE ENVIRONMENT” is used when describing our youth in a negative light. In order to help our children we must give them a healthy environment to grow in. Our outreach efforts have been numerous but scattered as we traveled throughout Brooklyn and communities in other states...


Our most important asset, resource and commodity is our children. They are smarter, faster learners and better creators than we were, than we are. Destroy a nation of children you destroy a nation of people. It is our belief that no child truly wants to run wild on the streets, be in gangs, sell or use drugs, or fall prey to the pressures of society’s campaign for sex and violence...
