Are you ready for some MANHOOD?
Suits for Success - Business & Leadership Workshops encourage young men to break the cycle of poverty; mentally, physically and spiritually. After completing the workshop, we provide each participant with professional attire to secure meaningful employment, but Suits for Success is much more than simply a new outfit!

Fathers in Action
Our "Fathers in Action Support Group" helps men 25 and over to engage with their family, friends and community in ways that are healthy, nurturing and consistent.
It seeks to engage men in the application of practical life and fatherhood skills through classroom instruction that leads to stronger families and community.
It encourages men to connect with their family and community in ways that are counter-intuitive to most of us in order to maintain healthy relationships.
Suits For Success Workshops
Our “Suits for Success” workshop is one of our community outreach efforts that empowers men with educational, career and workforce development.
It seeks to empower them with business, leadership skills, and organization skills that lead to personal and professional advancement.
It encourages them to examine how first impressions make lasting impressions, to develop a sense of style in their dress, and recognize the importance of personal grooming in obtaining and maintaining meaningful employment.
The Manny Awards Dinner
Our "Manny Awards Dinner" is our semi-formal dinner that encourages men through community celebration and recognition.
It seeks to empower them by honoring their effort and intentional involvement with their families and community.
It encourages them through recognition as unsung heroes in their families and community and honors them in the presence of their families, friends, co-workers and community with a night of celebration and connection.
