Stumbling is not falling and we can't get up!

Community Evolution Begins and Ends with Mental Toughness


Poverty is all around us and we will not turn away from it! Everyone has a right to achieve his/her inherent potential. They cannot when they are constrained by the context of circumstances in which they find themselves.

As urgent as possible, actions, resources, and policies of noticeable impact need to be measurable and provide our existing and future residents with Quality Mental and Physical Health, Public Safety, and Economic Empowerment.

Partnerships/collaborations with the leaders who make a difference and the neighborhood residents advisory are Critical to Implement Strategies.

We, the residents of under-served neighborhoods are declaring Community Evolution, not only remaining in our declining neighborhoods but not giving up the fight to create a thriving community to be desired to be a resident. Will you join forces?

Get in touch with Hand-N-Hand Community Services Foundation, Inc. to learn more about our work and how you can get involved. This is the remains of Central Academy High School, the first accredited high school in the county of Putnam, Florida. It is also the first accredited high school for the Indigenous people, the so called Black people, in the state of Florida. Although it is listed in the National Registry as an Historic Site, strategies to restore or renovate it has not been included in the comprehensive plans of the city. The citizens has been impacted by this school in the form of choices to achieve their inherent potential as well as increased options for their lives. We should ask ourselves where we would be had Central Academy High School never existed and we should act in accordance for not only this structure but we should set missions to improve neighborhoods with thriving elements!
