Born and Raised in Jersey City, I care very much so about the well being and productivity of this city and of its residents. The city I see today is one that I often do not recognize as I ponder on my childhood memories of playing and walking down the streets in various neighborhoods. Many people talk about change, but few implement it. Shamina Allen, founder of the Why Center is an individual who put her money where her mouth is. I personally witnessed faith, strong will and heartfelt passion at work when Shamina's dream of proving a safe haven, a place of development and support for those ready, willing and able to make better life choices came into fruition. The Why Center is just that for me and for the residents of Jersey City. It is an organization that genuinely cares. I am honored and it is most definitely a privilege to offer any and all my skills to this organization. An organization that is dedicated and determined to make an impact in this great city that will never be erased!

I have been a passionate supporter and member of the Why Center since 2012. Over the year I have seen nothing but great progress with this organization; from the Grand opening of our new facilities to the growing numbers in our workshops. The Courage support groups have been life changing for me and the open communication and skills learned have greatly benefitted my marriage. The Why Center is a home away from home to me and I am grateful to be apart of such a wonderful organization fully committed to serving the community. Praying for our longevity and continued success!
