Our mission is to empower youth through education in life skills, leadership, personal growth, while impacting positive humanitarian change and advocacy resulting in a shared community investment.
H.O.M.E. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (20-5834015) from the great state of Virginia, dedicated towards youth causes and a variety of humanitarian issues that affect our society today. These issues can play a major role and obstacle in deterring our kids away from serving their true purposes, growth potential, and journey’s in life. This is why we advocate that the journeys within our children begin within ourselves first, and the seeds we sow and invest in them as parents, caretakers, teachers, and providers. It is the true meaning and purpose of our renewed I M HOME logo, because that is exactly what we are to them. We are their world, their HOME, and invite you to share this most common thread of love for humanity with us.
The word “HOME” has a very profound and impactful meaning that can take on many different forms of identity, but generally we tend to understand it as a place of an unbreakable faith, strength, refuge, family, sense of belonging to, and/or centered place of love. Some search for it in all the wrong places, while others never leave or forget its origin. Most importantly, it is a place we can’t ever see through the portals of a stranger’s eyes. It is a reflection of everlasting memories and a pillar of rooted strength that identifies who we are in this world. It is able to be mirrored, gifted, transformed, or rediscovered through a remembrance of senses to get us back to where we belong. After all, HOME is where your heartis.
We are “out of the box” and forward thinkers with committed principles in having a profound impact in the lives we touch. While many of these principles are fundamental to the way we operate, we will remain open to amending them as we grow and learn more about the needs of youth and our humanitarian efforts. Although money is important and the “backbone” to the many things that we will like to do, it is “NOT” what defines us as educators of our causes and interest. We run our non-profit as a business with vested interest and are in it for the long haul. We are seed planters and laborers of faith with a desire to see adolescents succeed, socially mobilize, and grow to their highest potentials. We aim to be a renewed model of positive change and an educational platform of excellence to the youth and people we serve for the greater good. In order to see the CHANGE you have to be the CHANGE. Lastly, we believe that our efforts and call to action should merit your interest, active participation, and investment, as concerned parents, citizens, and a community by embracing a movement that is greater than ourselves. “Doing the right things, for the right reasons, even when no one else is looking”.
