Youth Support Programs

Back-to-School Drive

back2school

We collect a range of school supplies to donate to needy school-aged children in the community. We supply notebooks, pencils, pens, dictionaries, calculators, backpacks, highlighters, scissors and more. These supplies help ensure that students have the tools necessary for a successful school year.

Prom Gown Program

Prom Gown Program

The Prom is eagerly anticipated by many high school seniors, but not by those who do not have the means to purchase formal wear. The Prom Gown Program has two components. The first component involves custom made dresses given to selected students in our youth programs. A professional seamstress/designer makes and donates the dresses. The second component provides gently used prom gowns and suits that are distributed to students at a local high school.

Who Am I?

Who am I ProgramAt-risk boys aged 10-14 and 14-18 are taught how to make good choices that will shape their future. Participants are mentored in basic life skills such as: how to properly wear clothes, do laundry, and tie a tie, and how to be successful in school and in the workforce. Participants are also invited to attend networking events in the community where they meet individuals who can support them in achieving their goals.
