Four words: Hope for the Lost. That is the mission of The ASW Foundation, Inc. in a nutshell. In everything we do, we strive to show the youth in our communities that they have potential. Over the last five years, our organization has grown into a movement to stop the senseless gun violence in our communities. We believe that by supporting our youth, encouraging them, and providing them with creative and constructive outlets, we can change the narrative of the future. In 2019, our founder, Aaliyah Stewart, began developing a plan to build a youth center in her hometown of Gary, Indiana. This community center will be a safe haven for the youth of the city—a place where they can come together for recreation and to receive guidance and direction. When the center opens, it will be something unlike anything anyone has seen in the City of Gary in quite some time. #GODSPLAN
