a. Work to restore a sense of pride and ownership
In the african american community our school system reflects the lack of pride and ownership. We seek to share our Community Camp with the achievement schools .This will help introduce, community, unity , and homeownership.
b.Increase in homeownership in our communities
One of our services offered to the community AT NO COST is to help improve the conditions of some of the homes. We believe this simple gesture along with assisting local CRA’S and CAC’S with managing similar Neighborhood Improvement programs will help to improve our communities and make them more desirable .
We assist small businesses with counseling services to help improve and or grow their small business . We help those with an interest to start a business get the necessary information to launch a successful business .
The Center offers a variety of training annually to help extend an EDVANTAGE as it relates to housing, and business .
