We create value when we empower vulnerable individuals and families in need to become self-sustainable and self-reliant, with initiatives that will improve well-being, self-esteem, and dignity.
Holistic and Family-Centered Case Management
We want to assist our most vulnerable clients and their families with their most immediate needs, but also assist and coach the served individuals and families to be self-sustainable and self-reliant. Instead of serving the client once, we will assess their needs in different dimensions (health, finance, education, housing, etc.), identify the most impactful interventions, make successful internal and external referrals, and, in partnership with the client, develop a long-term or short-term plan of care to overcome the barriers that leave them vulnerable.
Referrals (internal and/or external) will be successful if THEY ARE relevant and cohesive to the client’s plan of care.

Academic Development Support for Children and Youth
We want to support every young person in need to build a strong foundation to prepare for and complete the highest level of postsecondary education or training to achieve their career goals. We want to incentive and nurture the college going and/or career development culture in our community by offering to children, youth, and their parents the support they need throughout their whole academic life (from prenatal care through their first year of college) for them to be able to make informed decisions and to overcome inequities created by the racial/economic/social divides.
