Our mission is to assist homeless women and children, veterans, youth aging out of foster care, and ex-offenders to attain self-sufficiency and live their best life through providing permanent supportive housing, mentoring, education, training, and entrepreneurship to leave a legacy for future generations.

Support Our Cause

Our Focus

Homeless Women & Children

We are committed to helping homeless mothers and children escape poverty and fear through housing, career and education.

United States Military Veterans

Help us to take United States homeless veterans off the streets and provide them food, shelter and career resources.

Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

Every year more than 20,000 youth in foster care age out of the system and lose life-changing services in the process.

Ex-Offenders and Former Inmates

We know that it is incredibly hard for ex-offenders to find good work, so we are creating a program to teach them how to succeed

Who We Help

Our Target population is to homeless women and children, youth aging out of foster care, veterans, and ex-offenders. Unfortunately, minorities are disproportionately affected by these conditions and while our commitment has been to serve the community at large, the majority of all of our individuals served have always been people of color.

Projects & Events


Our past accomplishment is a strong example of what we are capable of doing in the future.
