Serving Youth & Our Community

We are a non-profit organization that offers paid services, and the money we generate allows us to give back to our community in direct and tangible ways. Every dollar earned (through the S.P.A.R.K mentoring curricula, and other services) means that we can give free services, support, and education to anyone in our community who is under the age of 18. We also serve at-risk adults through local sex-trafficking support groups and domestic violence outreach. Our impact is further increased through donations, funding, and strategic partnerships.

Here are some of the ways we’ve made an impact in our local community this year…

The S.P.A.R.K. Curriculum was delivered to
582 STUDENTS

Taught across 2 local counties (Hillsborough County & Manatee County) this year, at no extra cost to students or their families.

Free Support to ANYONE Under the Age of 18

We gladly offer our services and support to all youth and children in our community, absolutely free of charge. Always.

52 Weeks of Local Support Groups

Helping survivors of sex trafficking regain hope, and plan for a bright future, we lead a weekly support group at a local safe house.
