Our story is simple

It's about change: Change that has a direct and lasting impact in our community, change that inspires others to press on toward a better tomorrow for youth and families, and change that develops leaders who care and positive role models to emulate. Since 1988, we have partnered with community members, agencies, neighborhoods, businesses and schools to create positive change.
