I became involved with New Image Youth Center about 5 years ago through a friend. The first time I met Shanta Barton-Stubbs and the children from New Image, I was hooked! What became so apparent to me was how these children come to the center each day voluntarily. No one is telling then they have to go. These children are seeking a better way of life. They are inspired by Shanta to make a difference in their community and be good citizens of Parramore. Shanta provides these kids with life skills, home work tutoring, a sense of family, a desire to give back to the community, and most of all self-esteem. I can tell you that it is all working. It is truly a place where children come because they desire this type of change in their lives. Parramore is a very challenging community where these children live. Yet despite the challenges of a difficult community, these children choose to change their lives and seek for a better future. The love, respect, and discipline that Shanta has emulated to these kids is nothing but remarkable. It is truly a privilege to be involved with this center. The financial situation is sometimes daunting, but Shanta never gives up because she keeps her focus on changing the lives of the children of Parramore. She is truly a remarkable woman running a remarkable facility. She HAS changed lives and she HAS inspired these kids to do much greater things with their lives.
