Integral to the Foundation's mission are direct service programs that offer individuals opportunities for personal growth.
Funding focuses on after school and summer programs that provide educational, social and recreational opportunities for individuals with special needs. The Foundation encourages projects that enhance one's ability to interact with his/her community; that empower families to become better advocates for their loved ones and that provide respite opportunities for families. Priorities also include professional development of special needs staff and a commitment to the assurance of personal safety and security of all individuals being served.
Funding supports comprehensive, long term after-school and summer programs for inner city youth that enhance self-esteem, build competencies, encourage continued education and provide opportunities for youth to reach their potential. Programs that include mentoring and educational supports, leadership skills, community involvement and/or internships opportunities are encouraged.
