WHY WE DO IT
Each year about 1,500 foster youth age out of the Los Angeles County child welfare system, unprepared for self-sufficiency. Most have nowhere to turn and face independence alone, without the benefit of enduring early relationships, role modeling and financial support, relegating them to chronic stress, instability and dependence.
We know that these young people and others experiencing rough starts, like under achievement in traditional academic settings, homelessness and recent incarceration, can benefit from non-traditional, asset centered, entrepreneur inspired settings like ours, and find economic independence and personal fulfillment.
Invest in the personal development and skills training of individuals who face the greatest barriers to employment, while building quality digital systems and human capital for socially responsible organizations and businesses.
Permanently and positively change life stories, from chronic instability and dependence to economic independence and fulfillment.
We strive to be asset based, fulfillment driven, and community-equity-and ecosystem centered.
Solve big problems by connecting good!
We specialize in affordable, easy to maintain, custom digital solutions for organizations and businesses committed to “good work”. Our services include: mobile app, web and PHP development, graphic design, CMS and E-commerce.
