Our parenting classes address issues that affect the parent/child relationship and aims to restore the family to wholeness and balance. Parents learn how to manage situations with their child with less anger and aggression. Parents learn different parenting styles and are able to determine which style works best for them.
Often, the parents of the children we work with need assistance, so we provide resources for utilities assistance, rent assistance, job opportunities and training, money management, budgeting classes, computer classes and affordable housing.
Our affordable housing program helps low-inome families in the community purchase or lease affordable housing. We provide credit repair assistance, home ownership seminars and loan services to facilitate the loan process.
Our creative Arts Program consists of "The Spoken Word," on Friday nights. Our youth learn to redirect their gifts of writing and speaking in a positive way. This program also offers art classes for youth who are gifted and those who desire to become artists. We encourage them to explore their creativity through drawing and painting.
