“Common sense is seeing things as they are; and doing things as they ought to be.” ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe
We desire to see unity within communities. All ages, all races, all religions coming together to change the stereotypes and statistics that our future generations currently face. Together we can bring back hometown memories, holiday traditions, and social responsibility. Together we will understand sustainable ecology, go back to our roots and plant the seeds to a healthier tomorrow.

Over 2 million American children live with grandparents or other relatives because their parents cannot care for them. In today’s society children and families are becoming more and more detached from their communities and social responsibilities. Did you know that statistics show that over 10 million children witness Domestic Violence annually? Foster group homes overwhelmed with the number of children needing placements.
We need to see a change, a big one. The phrase, “It takes a village,” comes to mind. But where is that village in our detached society?
Families are struggling, and children are experiencing the highest rates of suicide that our world has ever seen. What about children falling through the cracks of the foster system? How can we be a community that supports its families and children in a tangible way? We need to be the change. We need to bring back life to a lost and needing society with healthy choices, healthy food, healthy mentors, and teach healthy life skills to the next generation. Without a lifelong connection with a caring adult, community or family older youths often end up lost, vulnerable, unemployed, homeless, or in prison.
