CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

We continue to identify and recruit board members who have a genuine interest in the challenges of families in the inner city. We are also working on our strategic plan, and enlisting support from other organizations who are experiencing success in their fund raising efforts. We have expanded our partnerships to include Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and Nashville State. This partnership enhances our presence on local college campuses and organizations such as Retired Teachers and Senior Services.
