This organization is changing lives in a positive and productive way. As a single mom, I needed a support system and guidance. My 12 year old son had the privilege of attending their nine month Rites of Passage program and learned valuable character building skills that will help him in his journey through life. I was blessed to be a participant in their amazing Parenting Classes. Every family can benefit from the programs that they offer and I commend them for their professional training and mentorship under the leadership of such an amazing Director, Sandra Austin. This organization deserves the highest praise and honor for their hard work and dedication shown throughout the Coachella Valley communities. Thank you for the impact that you have made in our lives.
