Leadership

The development of leadership contributes greatly to the positive development of young people and their communities. Leadership skills, such as goal-setting, problem-solving and sound decision-making, are not just necessary for young leaders, but are essential in helping them make their dreams a reality.

Empowerment

Our goal is to provide a positive and transformational awareness change through an attitudinal, structural, and cultural process whereby young people gain the ability, authority, and agency to make decisions and implement change in their own lives and the lives of other people.

Development

Promoting personal growth and development efforts in youth through community sponsored events that aim at enhancing the scope of their opportunities, interests, skills, and their abilities. With the right balance, passion, creativity, and ingenuity, our youth can change the world with a positive cause.

 

 A Youth Leadership, Empowerment, & Development Organization

The Home of Miracles & Embraces (H.O.M.E.) is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (20-5834015) dedicated towards youth leadership, empowerment, and social development. Our mission is to empower youth through education in life skills, leadership, personal growth, while impacting positive change and advocacy resulting in a shared community investment. HOME has embraced other critical and challenging topics that affect youth in today’s society. These topics can play a major role and obstacle in deterring our kids from staying on the right path. Our focused and prevention topics include drug & alcohol use, teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, bullying, gang participation, and violence.

We realized that the problems that plague our youths today directly affect the choices and consequences they face on a daily basis. Infusing these problems into our core efforts enables us to equip and empower them with life-skills tools that will help them make better choices throughout their personal growth and developmental years. We aimed to educate and renew their mindset with our Focus on Youth strategy. Our educational efforts merits your active participation as parents and concern citizens. We are “Out of the Box” and forward thinkers that are in it for the long haul. Our principles guide the impact we want our organization to have in who we are, all that we do, why we do it, and how we do it. 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 our own work.

Our methodologies allow us to explore various ways that empowers students to learn and encourage them to stay in school fosters an environment of success through leadership development, life skills, and a visionary career path to reach. This effort is further complemented by teaching and advocating to these youths about citizenship, serving their communities, accepting responsibilities, finding spiritual purpose, and taking on a more proactive approach with their lives. 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 refuge, sense of belonging to, a place of love that one can identify with, a place of reflection, everlasting memories, and a pillar of rooted strength that identifies who we are in this world. HOME is able to be transformed and rediscovered from time to time, some may never find home after departing from it, while others never leave, but most importantly, it is a place we can never see through a stranger’s eyes for more than a moment.

Our focus remains clear and on target with the topics of our interest. We advocate the need for all parents to understand that their active roles are instrumental in their own child’s life and coincide with our principles and methodologies. Your understanding, active involvement, and commitment in their lives will have a profound impact on their own purpose and journey’s. It is a commitment that we should help afford to our children in pursuit of their own happiness, freedoms, and prosperity. We stand ready to collaborate and partner with all parents, educational resources, and community based organizations to reach our common goals for the Greater Good. We have been blessed and embraced by our own families, friends, business sponsors, and individual supporters who believe in us. 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 cause. We do this with the principles of faith and stand in agreement with the purpose of our spiritual lives and purpose. We are committed in becoming a renew model of education and a platform of excellence for our children.
