“How we do what we do”
FIND: We seek out grassroots faith and community based organizations serving low-income youth and families. These providers are uniquely skilled to meet their community needs with a level of cultural sensitivity, understanding, and competence.
FUND: We seek funding to provide funding. As an intermediary organization we are in a position to access Federal, State, Philanthropic and Corporate funds we then re-grant to our sub-grantee partners to enhance and expand their services.
FORM: We provide technical assistance, training, and capacity building. Following the leadership principle: “give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime”, all our sub-grantees are empowered in all aspects of organizational development for long-term sustainability.
FEATURE: Giving “voice to vision” is an important theme we strive to serve our sub-grantees with by helping them tell their stories on a larger platform to expose them to their community stakeholders, as well as funders at the Federal and State level.
