Don't let life
Our mission is to empower the disenfranchised persons of today so they may dream again, hope again and live again by coupling long term independent living, life enhancement skills and social development skills with our four-stage program that will develop successful entrepreneurs and change lives forever.
Journey To Empowerment: creating a better future through empowering the disenfranchised persons of today for a productive tomorrow.
Too many systems and organizations continue to victimize the disenfranchised by not completely giving them the necessary tools to keep them from falling into the worst situations. Every year, 4,200 children in the state of California alone age out of foster care, 65% of which have no place they can call home, and 40% of all homeless Americans are from the LGBTQ community. This allows for the continuation of heavy bullying in school, leading to a high rate of high school drop outs and unwanted pregnancies, which in turn leads to a higher population of young and single parents on public assistance and a higher rate of suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence (whether as the abused or the abuser), and repeat offenders. Because of this, they end up living in poverty, find themselves trapped in the judicial system, or worst of all, wind up in the morgue. Studies show that 86% of first-time offenders become second-time offenders; they continue to stay in the system with no real chance of being rehabilitated. Let’s not forget about the young adults that grew up in a house where they were neglected, sexually or physically abused, and forgotten by their own family and friends. This creates a population of disenfranchised young adults from all walks of life that have fallen victim to the non-supportive support systems that were put in place to protect them.
