"The basic things expected by our people of their political and economic systems are simple. They are:
Equality of opportunity for youth and for others.
Jobs for those who can work.
Security for those who need it.
The ending of special privilege for the few.
The preservation of civil liberties for all."
-- Franklin Delano Roosevelt, January 6, 1941

We work in partnership with community groups already in the field to develop innovative programs in four distinct areas -- educational advancement, financial literacy, nutritional education, and psychological counseling.
