Mission Statement

To embrace the at-risk population in the community. To provide mentors, education, and transformation. To support community all-inclusiveness.

Description

After two years of studying how to form a non-profit organization, I finally formed a phenomenal board of directors, and registered Community Heroes on April 30, 2019. Three major experiences have directly inspired me to create community heroes. The first experience is being unprepared for life after grade school. The second contributor is the inability to self-identify with someone with my limitations. The other major factor is the lack of employment opportunities. We Are Doing This Now to Fix the Problem Community Heroes solves this problem by offering the following services. Mentoring the targeted population, finding employment, and lifestyle options that are accessible to the population. We’re offering mentorship, motivational video testimonies, and raising awareness in the community. We’re raising awareness through seminars that inform businesses, residents, and the community. Also, we raise awareness of barriers within the community that hinder the all-inclusive concept needed in business and communities to achieve equal accessibility. Lastly, we initiate transformation, offering job placement assistance, trade skills, and scholarships for education and consistent employment. If a mentee takes advantage of all the services provided their probability of being independent and starting a career should have a high probability.
