Where We Thrive

Where We Thrive (WWT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation established in June, 2019, whose mission is to help Rebuild, Restore, Mentor, and Develop our community resources to improve the lives of our citizens living in poverty with emphasis on at risk youth and the elderly.   

Specifically, WWT seeks to provide mentoring programs for at-risk youth such as computer labs and career education programs.  We propose tutoring and motivational programs geared to encourage our children to seek scholarships and grants for higher education institutions.  WWT also seeks to provide services specific to our elderly such as healthy meals and exercise programs to help with mobility/balance and will sponsor and recruit volunteers to help with minor home repairs and maintenance.

WWT seeks to establish a community center asset that can serve its neighbors with resources and educational opportunities provided by WWT.
