Areas of Service
Our 4 concentrated areas of serving our community start with the 2 generation approach to address a strong male presence with our Middle School age boys to establish leadership skills and then via parent engagement with a lens to include fathers. Lastly, to meet the men right where they are, to include the community and prisons to elevate responsible fatherhood via honor, encouragenent, accountability, reconciliation and training.

To focus on middle school boys to combat peer pressure, act of acceptance and lack of parental involvement and behavioral problems; with the aim to promote self-confidence, positive social behavior, greater resilience, healthy relationships and long-term academic success.

It cultivates camaraderie, alleviates isolation, and encourages personal growth through supportive connection establishing a network of emotional support within the county.
