Our Mission

In addition to historic divestment, intergenerational poverty, and legacies of systemic racism, Kensington is at the epicenter of the opioid epidemic and has recently experienced an exponential rise in gun violence, exposing our youth to unprecedented levels of violence, human suffering, and trauma.

We believe every community has the right to services that transform, spaces that inspire, and access to the resources needed to reach our full human potential.  Thoughtfully and purposefully located in the heart of Kensington, we are a comprehensive community-based organization that offers trauma-informed youth engagement programming which utilizes best practices to build the power of Kensington’s youth to heal from trauma, build the resiliency needed to reach their goals, and harness their creativity for change.
