Transforming the lives of
We define justice as "setting things right"
and we believe this is a way that we can help curb systemic crime, homelessness, and poverty in our neighborhoods.
By making investments in these
young men who are at high risk
for becoming another statistic,
we can affect substantive
change in our community.
We believe it is time to stop laying blame
and get to work. We take for granted
the life skills that our families, schools,
and communities of faith have taught us. Imagine how great our struggle would
be if not for those willing to instill in us certain abilities and values?
We are blessed and therefore must,
in turn, bless others.
There's a misconception that our young people "have it easier" or "don't have
to work as hard." These ideas and
attitudes, among many others,
are the failings of our society to
recognize that all of us are contributors
to the systemic problems that plague
our communities. But the amazing thing is:
We are also the solution!
