Welcome to our Homepage.
We operate out of Mecklenburg County in Charlotte, North Carolina.
We receive donations for our purpose, mission, and goal through donors, small and large from all walks of life.
We also receive donations through institutions, agencies, corporations and social change philanthrophy.
Social change philanthrophy is a collective form of charitable giving directed at resolving root causes of social, economic and environmental injustices, not just symptoms.
We are counting on social change philanthropy to help us build new structures and systems that save lives and delivers the kind of impact and change Charlotte has NEVER seen before.
With recurring donor support from donors like YOU, we can remedy injustices and outdated practices that are no longer compatible with the changing times.
We can also end the cycles of mobility failure that continue to breed stagnation and decades of little or no progress.
Especially, when it comes to poverty relief for children born and STUCK in poverty who we embrace as Equity-Deprived Youth.
The mission before us in Charlotte, is to FREE 39,641 Equity-Deprived Youth who are STUCK and trapped in Charlotte’s Poverty Web.
To be clear, all cities across the United States have webs of poverty. However, a Harvard study concluded, it is harder to get out of poverty in Charlotte than any other large city in the United States.
Most children born and STUCK in poverty, arrive in poverty through no fault of their own and under circumstances beyond their control.
Ironically, the same powerful economic, political and social forces who share an irrevocable responsibility for the safety, health and wellbeing of these youth, are the same forces that oversee their neglect and deprivation.
As a result, far too many youth in Charlotte are being left further behind with less education, less wealth, poor health and shorter lifespans.
From our perspective, a shorter lifespan is nothing less than than an early DEATH sentence being stamped on the lives and future of innocent youth who have committed no CRIME!
Given this reality, the question becomes: In what universe does this practice have any moral standing?
For decades, despite the best intention claims of a polite society, Charlotte has maintained a poverty cycle whereby 2 out 3 children born and STUCK in poverty struggle, and fail as adolescents and teens, and end up remaining in poverty as adults for life!
This detrimental practice has gone on for so long in Charlotte, it begs to question: Who owns this problem?
We are intervening now for two humane reasons.
One, because intentionally or unintentionally, the status quo in Charlotte is still starving the health out of the development of these youth who are in no position to prevent it on their own.
To be crystal clear, the status quo system and structure that is supposed to serve and protect these youth, have put programming in place.
The problem is, the programming is an outdated solution approach, that is not only ineffective in helping youth escape from poverty, it is also destroying Equity-Deprived lives at an alarming rate.
We are hopeful that all of our donors will care enough to help anyway they can to STOP this carnage in its track.

The Current State of Poverty in America
In the United States, 12.8% of 324,173,084 people live in poverty. The child poverty rate (for people under age 18) was 16.9% in 2021, 4.2 percentage points higher than the national rate of 12.8%.
- According to Talk Poverty, 1.4 million North Carolinians live below the poverty line, the Federal Government defines as (less than $26,000 for a family of four).
Today, the poverty rate in Charlotte, North Carolina is 9.38% lower than the US average. In Charlotte, North Carolina, an estimated 11.6% of 850,971 people live in poverty, which totals approximately 108,000 people.
On average, two out of three adolescents and teens, born and STUCK in poverty, struggle, and fail, and end up remaining in Charlotte’s Poverty Web™ as adults, for life!
These youth are between the ages of birth to 24 years old. All the Equity-Deprived Youth (EDY) in our network live with families whose income are at or below Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
Out of the 108,000 people living in poverty in Charlotte, we aim to help 36,641 Equity-Deprived Youth (EDY) between the ages of 10-24, who are STUCK in poverty reside in the eight poorest zip codes in Charlotte, that identify families living below the poverty line: 28204, 28202, 28206, 28208, 28203, 28205, 28213, and 28217
The income of the families living below the poverty line are as follows:

Traditionally, government programs and NGO organizations partner together to meet the unmet needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable youth.
Usually, NGO organizations compete against one another over limited funding and the best way to go forward.
Unfortunately, the unintended consequence of competing interest fighting each other over the same funds is that it almost always guarantees that stagnant progress will remain mired in vegetating stagnation.
THE TRADITIONAL ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND SOCIAL FORCES HAVE FAILED TO FREETHESE YOUTH FROM POVERTYFOR DECADES
Although powerful political, economic, and social forces in Charlotte share an irrevocable responsibility for the safety, health, and well-being of Equity- Deprived Youth (EDY), these same forces also play another central role:
‘FREE YOUTH STUCK IN POVERTY’, is not only our reason for action, it is the call of our time, for all all donors large and small to respond to and support our cause in a way they have NEVER done before.
‘FREE YOUTH STUCK IN POVERTY’, is also the heart of our passion, purpose, mission and goal. Why? Because despite best intention claims of the status quo, these youth are cut off from equitable access to opportunity, resources, and upwardmobility they need to transition successfully from youth into adulthood.
Poverty is an intentional man-made social construct with disatrous results, using social and economic measures in two ways. One, to keep the lives of youth born in poverty, STUCK in poverty with little or no life-changing opportunity to escape.
