our vision

The vision of the Foundation is to foster, among our brothers and sisters in need of second chances in life, a deepened and more effective integration into family, community and society through the optimal development of personal, creative, academic and professional potential. The Foundation nurtures this potential by adopting culturally-relevant approaches leading to outcomes that ultimately serve to nourish, stabilize and strengthen all of our communities. Our vision emerges from a deep sense of participation in, and commitment to, social processes that seek to bring to all people Truth and a greater Life.
