Mother's Day Social

YM Conference

Our boys enrichment training (BET) program is our flagship service. Providing a challenging, uplifting and socially positive environment for success.  

Our Young Men (YM) Conference provides an opportunity for fun, fellowship and inspiration.  

This annual event acknowledges the powerful role and bond between mother and son and honors the work of the single mothers in our community.

Field Trips, College Tour, Boot Camps, Guest Speakers, Volunteer and Internship opportunities present amazing opportunities for our youth.


Our goal is to prepare young men for adulthood and to end the school-to-prison pipeline that plague our society. 


We envision communities in which every child attains the knowledge, development and attention needed to achieve their goals and live their dreams.


To provide young men a choice in the direction in their life by providing uplifting, inspiring and informative opportunities in leadership, life skills and entrepreneurship.

Boys Enrichment 

In today's society too many of our boys and young men are not getting the attention they deserve.  I created SAFE Place to provide an environment in which they can be be respected and learn to give respect; where they can be challenged and challenge themselves.
