Our work

We work to empower Black communities through advocacy, services to seniors, family health and wellness, youth and workforce development

In the areas that deeply affect the social and economic conditions of Black families in our communities, it is important that our voices are heard and that they matter to decision makers.  

Our programs are our these values in action. They help us activate civic empowerment, navigate through complicated systems, and support healthy outcomes for the communities we serve.
