Mission: The mission of pride and hope inc is to provide services to at-risk individuals and families with special needs. We believe that systems such as vocational, educational, and recreational will help prevent and break the cycle of institutionalization of disadvantaged children and adults.
Programs: Through pride and hope efforts for 2014 over 150 single parents were given part - time and temporary jobs. Youth camps were used as tools to present activities to youth that would both build self esteem and encourage them to excell in education. Phm through its progams endeavored to remove any obstacles that might prevent the youths realizing their displayed or stated purpose in life. A daycare building was renovated. Daycare services are helping more single parent household use a safer enviroment for children that are under school age. The daycare gives parents an opportunity to seek employment. The daycare also gives an enviorment that prepares the children who participate for the upper levels of education.
I am familiar with the summer camp program and respite services that this group offers. They also offer afterschool programming, lifeskills training, mentoring and a Class A licensed child care center. I highly respect the leader of the summer camps and the day care - Ms. Myra Magee and she brings years of experience and leadership to the organization. There are several other very good leaders in charge of programs there also. They are currently working to take a bus to Florida to let 36 children experience a trip for their first time! It will be life-changing and fun for them.
