An organization dedicated to bringing relief to U.S. neighborhoods in poverty.

The number of high-poverty neighborhoods in the US has tripled in the last 40 years. We are dedicated to stopping this rise and helping communities create their own wealth and here’s how.

we believe in breaking barriers

Our program focuses on eliminating economic, racial, and academic disparities for residents in low-income, under-represented communities.

we believe in providing opportunity

By equipping individuals with the skills and mindset needed to launch their own success we provide life long learners and problem solvers. Empowering entrepreneurs to address needs in their neighbourhoods and generate a profit from their efforts is the cornerstone of building a self-sustaining ecosystem that will enrich the life of each community as a whole.

we believe in alternative public safety, that works!

Society often ignores alternative strategies for the prevention of crime. For example, research shows that higher levels of household income are associated with lower rates of intimate partner violence against women. We believe in breaking the cycle of poverty and offering opportunity to eliminate violence and rising crime rates.

we believe all humans deserve to THRIVE!

Each individual no matter of race, color, sexuality, religion, political views, or gender, deserves equal opportunity. This includes access to resources, basic human necessities, and quality food and services within their communities. This also includes the ability to create a better life for themselves and their families and the opportunity to achieve one’s definition of success.
