Mission and Vision

The Issue:

Poverty!  The truth is, poverty robs many children & teens of their promise & possibilities.

 Our Mission:

               Our mission is Opening Doors to Education for children and teens affected by poverty and violence by helping to meet their need for nutrition, shelter, education, healthcare, mental health, spiritual formation and leadership development.  Why?  It is our life’s work and because we agree with freed American slaves, Frederick Douglas:  “It is easier to  build strong children than to repair broken men” (& women).

Our Vision:

                Our words and deeds will reduce risk factors, promote resilience in children and teens and help to build strong children and teens in the USA, Liberia, the U.S.A. and, Jamaica by supporting their education, healthcare, spiritual formation and, leadership development.
