mission & vision

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and empower.


As a City Planner, I have been blessed to not only develop communities but work hand in hand to work with the people who live in these communities.  I am so fortunate to be able to impact the lives of others, partner with great organizations and mentor those who have reached their hand towards me because they trust in A Worthy Cause.
