I believe that together we can create and resolve many unaddressed issues. We will strive to create a new happy place within the lives of those that have a need to receive.

RENÉ DOZIER-RILES, CEO/ EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
My desire to help others build/rebuild their lives stem from my earlier years as an at-risk child and teenager. Because of my past experiences, I developed a desire to be a vessel to assist others who where experiencing some difficult times just as I had. I can relate to those who need a little support to move forward. I know what it's like to live a life not knowing what to do, or worst; living a life not knowing what my purpose is. I know what it's like to be ostracized, homeless, and lacked the ability to provide for self. I had to learn how to build a productive life; I had to learn how to become an overcomer."
