Our Purpose

As an organization, we exist because we believe in building a strong community. In order to do that, we must start at the foundation: our youth. We are focused on strengthening and empowering vulnerable youth because that is where we can make the most impact. We can make significant contributions to society by helping those that need it the most and are the face of the future.



To unite people and empower our communities in bettering the lives of
at-risk and vulnerable youth.


We LIVE UNITED to lead the way in inspiring individuals, engaging communities, and building brighter futures for our youth.


We collaborate with community partners to invest in the future of our youth.
We proactively educate the community regarding vulnerable youth and how to be a force of change.
We empower vulnerable youth with confidence and education to make sound decisions.
We are the catalysts that strengthen our vulnerable youth in order to keep our community strong.
