Mission

We are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving families and communities impacted by incarceration, poverty, academic and economic barriers by providing educational programs, self-help, reentry support, housing and youth violence prevention services.

With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

Our Core Values

Positivism in the face of Obstacles 

Compassion through Difficulties 

Belief in the Potential of all Others

Failure is never an option it's only a Teacher

Resilience Is our Attitude

Empathy is a requirement to serve with Purpose


We have been a vital part of our community for a number of years. We were founded to serve the growing segment of our community - prisoners reentering society - in need of inaccessible services. We have continued to grow with the help of our donors and volunteers. Through all these years our purpose still remains the same: bring services to those in need. Our aim is to empower both our youth and adult members of the community with reentry services, temporary to permanent supportive housing, employment opportunities, educational tools, resources, positive influences, skills development and leadership training in order to keep them on a path that will guide them to success, steering clear of the path that leads to prison. 


Goals for 2021

40 additional adult male beds in South Los Angeles, (LA County SPA 6)

40 adult female housing beds in the Antelope Valley, (LA County SPA 1)

Becoming a Monthly Donor

We are providing the help needed to transform individuals and communities. Support us by making your tax-deductible donation to our results-based, solution-driven organization. Thank you! 

  • The key to our success and expansion is having people like you working with us to ensure that our message of hope reaches the masses. We believe that we have developed a blueprint of services and programming that transforms lives for individuals, families and communities impacted by incarceration. Once you hear our story, we are confident you will agree that we must replicate our model across the nation. However, we cannot do it without financial contributions and opportunities to share our vision with your networks, peers, religious communities, etc. Please invite us to speak or present our program at your next event. In the meantime, please donate generously. We greatly appreciate your support!
