We Invest in People

We’ll meet with you to address any immediate needs then identify some life goals. Do you want to enroll your child in preschool to get him or her on a path to success early in life? Are you unemployed and looking for a job? Do you want to go back to school to get a college degree? Are you having trouble paying the bills and making ends meet?  Whatever your challenges are, we will work with you on solutions.

We Nurture Success

We provide health + dental screenings, emphasize the importance of nutrition + exercise, promote family engagement, teach new skills and will work with you to sharpen key abilities. We offer free workshops on topics from managing time better to improving self-esteem. We will encourage you to walk taller and prepare you to get the job you are seeking. We instill confidence, you can do it!

We Transform Lives

We are teachers, family development specialists, job coaches, case managers, nutritionists, program monitors and school bus drivers. We are someone to talk with and share your dreams.  We hope to inspire you, and we are rooting for your success.
