"About A Place Called Home

Mission

To provide at-risk youth with a secure, positive family environment where they can regain hope and belief, earn trust and self-respect and learn skills to lead to a productive lifestyle free of the gangs, drugs and poverty that surround them. We help inner city youth find their dreams through educational enrichment.

Vision

In the next 5 years, we would like A Place Called Home to impact the community with:

A decline in violent and gang related activities
An increase in High School graduates
An increase in college entrants and graduates
An increase in gainfully employed community members
Better awareness of health issues in community
A community give-back campaign where community contributes to the success of APCH
All programs "certified" as "model or ideal" for after school programming
Community activists who fight for their rights in housing, jobs and other issues
A community with more technological access, learning ability and success
Thousands more children reaching their academic, creative and social potential through APCH programs

    Yeah, good luck with that. Make sure you teach them how to not stab people in the neck with a meat thermometer.

    Oh wow, such a radical new concept that's never been done before.
    An after school program for inner city youth. Why didn't I think of that?
    -
    Another program on top of hundreds of programs to supposedly do what the schools should be doing…teaching.

    Haven't the black politicians got enough of these scams in place?…
    a slush fund for themselves and their family members?
    Guess not.

    So cynical, what's up with that? Why don't you come down and visit A Place Called Home and see the work before you write it off? Maybe you could even pitch in and make a difference. Thanks to all the non-cynics who came out to the event last night!

    I'm very hurt.
    I'm no cynic.
    In fact, I'm hopeful.
    Just today, Obama announces, "It's time to stop spending and balance the budget."
    Al Capone, another Chicago community organizer, was a pretty good philanthropist too!
