Mission statement: Our goal is to unite the diverse non-profit and for-profit entities into an inclusive community that fosters compassion and service. Facilitating the use of a common language such as the golden rule and the hero’s journey will bring about hope, and the feelings of Ubuntu, as we explore PIES: the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a social order.
Join us in speaking the Language of Hope: Awareness of Self, Others, and Community by allowing your employees to volunteer.
Join the Breakthrough Challenge in supporting students on their pathway to college.
