With property values dropping in many low income communities, many residents are moving out of what they call troubled areas because of their surroundings. Harsh conditions, crimes, drugs, low education, lack of love for one another, and a continued loss of life, we knew we had to do something about it. The behind closed door choices that are made for the communities without the communities choosing often times become gentrification as a result. We chose not to lose hope. Instead of moving out of these areas; we must improve the conditions, occupy, and buy its properties. If we can change the environment and it's economics, we can change the perception in value of how its residents see their current surroundings.
Fortunately, for many who have come from these areas, and those that still occupy these residential settings, there is a common goal that resonates - it is time for change. Income, education, and occupation all have a significant impact on the social economic status of these communities. Our programs are designed to help empower low-income communities to be more self-sufficient and prosperous. Mental health conditions are often overlooked in these areas as well. The individual, or families, that are faced with these conditions are left helpless without knowing where to start, or who to seek for genuine help. We don't want to build communities by making them dependent by consistently giving a fish, we want to work with the support of its residents and create independent communities by unifying and teaching how to fish.
At this time of building, it is not only important to establish an equal platform for all, but it is imperative that we show a unity, love, and respect for each other in order for us as a determined community to achieve our goals.
