Work with members in your community and make a difference

For far too long, some of Hampton Roads' communities have been impoverished - many times resulting in individuals having a lack of education, imprisonment, and the resources needed to provide them with the keys to success.  As a community, WE have the power and influence (through our life's experiences and desire to help) to give back to the community (whether it's donating your time or contributing financially).  Let's band together, and be that village that uplifts and encourages our communities for the better!  No help is too small.


for our future

Let’s come together and contribute to our communities' success!


  • Homeless Help
  • College Prep
