Our vision is to advance equity and justice for all through whole person health.
Our vision is to advance equity and justice for all through whole person health with a trauma-informed wellness approach, taking into account a person’s past and present life experiences, to promote healing and belonging. We hypothesize that by taking a holistic approach to individual health for all, centering ourselves to become an antiracist organization, and driving necessary systems change (starting with ourselves), we can produce more equitable outcomes for all, especially Black, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC), as well as, other marginalized youth, families, older adults and communities, to develop their full potential.
Walk with us, join us in this critical work, and help us support youth and foster stronger communities for all. Learn more about Vision 2025 and how you can help by volunteering, giving, raising awareness, committing to your own personal journey of learning, and more.
We actively promote a culture free from bias and injustice - we are committed to becoming an anti-racist organization and centering our work around active and disciplined efforts to disrupt multi-dimensional aspects of racism, starting with ourselves.
We embrace and deploy a holistic approach to health and wellness, and integrate our programs and services to address all aspects of health to include physical, mental & emotional, social/relational, spiritual/cultural, and community well-being.
We drive systems change through our programs and advocacy by removing barriers to access and creating enabling conditions for the communities we serve. We seek to disrupt and re-imagine systems that have produced harm and inequitable outcomes, particularly for BIPOC and other marginalized and underserved communities.
With the context of the dual pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism and the clarion call for equity and justice for all, we will approach our financial, programmatic, and organizational recovery grounded in the needs of our diverse and varied communities.
Join us in this critical work to advance equity and justice for all.
We need your partnership and support as we work to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind, and body.
