Saving Our Sons And Daughters 

Mentoring And A Meal

Prison Prevention Program

Our organization is a not for profit charitable organization and our mentoring program is focused on anyone wanting to be mentored in their personal, educational, professional growth. Faith base organizations have played a much needed role in developing jobs, low income housing, social programs, providing start-up capital for businesses, and civic infrastructure in the United States. However, while there have been a few notable successes, there is a vast need to continue starting more programs. The vast majority of churches don’t participate in the economic revitalization of their communities. The African American church must be a vehicle for future change in its community, promoting partnerships . African-American churches in the past has desperately provided services needed by the community such as childcare, food banks, elder care, and senior housing. But the African-American church must be true to all the needs of the community including economic development and mentoring. The service it has been able to provide, however are crucial to revitalize their neighborhood. Communities need jobs, housing, businesses, and service to thrive. But it also needs more mentoring. Without any one of them the community will not be able to meet the needs of the people who live there. There lies our uniqueness we will implement in stages each part spoken of in our program for our men-tees. The faith base must be able to work with public and private institutions. With the help of God and institutions, We can turn the vision of rebuilding, neighborhoods into a reality. African American church must step up to help save their communities. The church should want to see the areas around them improve. We will focus on but not be limited to the Youth of the Incarcerated - Youth of the reentering citizen - Homeless Youth - Other at Risk Youth
