On average, 100 Americans are killed due to gun violence each day. With the influx of violence in our communities and around the world, it can be difficult for our youth to focus on the positive. The ASW Foundation seeks to change this. How? The I AM THEM Hope Youth Center. We see this facility as a safe haven for youth of all ages. Through the center, we will help our youth discover and cultivate their gifts—and ensure that they have a place to escape to just be a kid. We want to help every child feel accepted and loved. It is our vision that the Hope Center will one day become a beacon of light in the community that helps reduce the gun violence and increase our community success stories
