Through active engagement and open communication, we empower the youth, safeguard the elders, and assist those navigating transitional phases, providing essential aid to those in need. This vision has been the driving force behind my mother’s unwavering dedication, a legacy I proudly carry forward. In pursuit of positively impacting every life we touch, we established Dorothys Daughter, a nonprofit with 501(c)(3) exempt status. Central to our efforts are the six ongoing initiatives known as the “I Am” programs, strategically designed to address specific needs within our community.
At Dorothy's Daughter, our mission is to prepare youth on the road to becoming adults with tools that will help them to maneuver through life successfully. We also assist seniors with access to resources, and the community we serve with trainings and apprenticeship programs. We also recognize some youth are in constant transition with has caused gaps in their education so we provide educational services until each child feels secure enough to reintegrate into public education. Our goal is to equip young individuals with essential life skills—financial planning, home management, self-care, professional development, and social engagement.
Our primary goal is to ensure that every child we serve recognizes their inherent greatness and never feels marginalized. We aim to grant them access to a myriad of opportunities that will enrich their future. Above all, we aspire for each young person to internalize the certainty that they are always enough. Our doors remain open, providing a constant place of refuge and support, ensuring they never feel alone.
I Am Important To My Community is underway.
