Impacting Families Through Education, Environmental Exploration, and Wellness In The Carolinas.
Melanin Parks Foundation seeks to address the whole child through education, experiential environmental opportunities, financial literacy, and physical wellness. Our strength is in our versatility of skillsets and diversity in outreach. The Foundation has served numerous families in need of dental services and outlets for mental health prior to our official incorporation. Through networking and outreach by the founders and a small circle of like-minded individuals, the need to grow formally and intentionally seek funding to continue services was evidenced. The result was the creation of the foundation. The sole premise was to create an entity that could serve and reach a wider swath of the population and create an ecosystem of world-class care in the Carolinas.
Our areas of focus in the community center around four areas:
physical wellness (mental and oral health)
educational preparedness that leads to a 2 year or 4-year education
financial literacy (business development, investment, basic money management)
Outdoor experiential education and exposure
