About Us


It is our goal to empower the children and youth of our region with a real understanding of their purpose and the role they play in it, while equipping them with skills needed in today's technological world to both achieve personal goals and excel in life.

We endeavor to bring change and an atmosphere of positive values through "The Life Center". (Fact: In the 2016-2017 school year, the East Chicago and Hammond, IN high school districts had a 31% drop-out rate. Nearby Calumet City has one the highest youth crime rates in suburban Cook County.) We believe that change is not only necessary but vital to thousands of young peoples lives and their future. In other words, we've decided to be a part of the solution and with your help we will "Turn Possibilities Into Reality" in the East Chicago, Hammond, IN/Calumet City, IL area.

We believe that by connecting with kids and meeting their foundational needs of belonging by teaching them values and restoring their hope and confidence to achieve are of utmost importance. Our team is committed to meeting those needs and empowering them for a success life.

We are a 501-C3 non-profit organization that believes in giving people a hand-up so that they can accomplish their dreams in this competitive and technological era we live in. We invite you to become a part of this new and innovative way of bringing change to the region by giving financially and volunteering (2-4 hours per month) of your wisdom, care and skills with young people, thereby making a huge difference and bringing hope to those who need it most. Thank you in advance for getting involved in "Changing Lives" for the "Now Generation" and beyond!
