We Raise Awareness

It is our job to make people aware of the issues that are plaguing our youth and to give them a voice to be heard. We raise awareness so they are not alone trying to overcome all life throws at them.  As members of our community, we need to take care of our youth, and it starts with raising awareness that there are issues.
