We Believe

That anyone can thrive. Yet without the right opportunities and influence, many stop believing in themselves. We teach individuals with social and economic disadvantages how to identify and apply their unique strengths to become self-sufficient through these sustainable programs:

Domestic

LifeStrengths is our answer to the growing need for developing at-risk and homeless youth in our communities. Youth are nominated to LifeStrengths through a local agency partner or school and are paired with a LifeCoach to begin 1-on-1 development through coaching. The LifeCoach guides each youth to dream of a brighter future, set goals, celebrate achievements, and bring a network of caring community members alongside them on their journey to self-sufficiency.

Global

We’re working to transform the community of Kore, Ethiopia, from one known for its poverty and disease to one known for its thriving people. Through our integrated community development approach, we’re creating opportunities for sustainable employment for women, increasing access to health care, eliminating barriers to education for children, providing resources to keep families together, and reducing the unemployment rate among youth.
