Kids In Discovery Of Self (K.I.D.S.)
working with Inner City Youth by helping in:
Kids In Discovery Of Self, Inc. (K.I.D.S.)
A heart focused Journey for our inner city young adults 14 up.
I need you to understand that this a book that needs to be read prior to judgement. For inspite of our cover, we're real! The small amount of testimonies that you can read on our "Testimony Page" is indeed a small amount, and to this point? There are few assisting! When this organization started? I wasn't in a position to receive donations! Wasn't fully certified via IRS until 2002.
The goal is to establish where we started and allow you to trust by watching growth with these young adults!
Our focus is the right, wrong and why; the importance of being"concerned" for ones fellow man; the processing of thoughts and need for control prior to decisions; Their many communities of "self" such as "ego, emotions, pride etc...
Teaching of self (the many components and understanding of), the conversations one should have while struggling during this period of trial and error on a near adult level, aiding in better choices/focus. Teaching that reality is harsh, yet it is what it is. It's life, and making choices are the bases for it reason why they are very important. The majority of the ones I work with, have worked with and going to work with? Thoughts and processes are all rare for them, at times and can even be extreme. Our history has shown that the majority tend to go to the negative. Self doubt is common, for hopelessness is very prevalent.
We've achieved much in our past with nothing more than what we had. Any participation in any negative meant instant removal from the home base and or participation in the many ventures we journeyed to. The natural order established was to encourage "I am my brothers keeper" We were blessed to succeed for many! Even to the point of having to put one out, but he turned himself in for a crime we had no knowledge of his committing, his goal in this? To come back "home", that's what they (the kids) even if they did not reside there, called where I lived. See there were many, and 5 were mine. I was determined then for them to not to be of any negative statistics while on my watch. So, even he showed the influence I had.
K.I.D.S Inc is all that I've developed during the many years in preparation to get to the level that many have so graciously assisted with. Thank you to the many that I speak of. You know who you are. Prayers that my finally deciding to share me and striving to touch others to see what you've seen all these years is my goal in sharing here.
I feel as though I need to apologize for the difference in my approach to what many thoughts of me have been. I am very different. This all started because I wanted for my children not what I suffered with as a child. The feelings as though you were only a "Dollar Sign" the negative from the beginning, being that I was told that I wasn't wanted.
My beautiful Mom (one can't blame a person for their level of understanding) said that she had me only because abortions were illegal and very dangerous; she loved me because I was her child. Yet she reared me when I was young as though I was a burden, then upon my becoming a young woman, having developed early in life, she saw me as a positive Dollar Sign"
That wasn't correct (even from my tender age awareness level) So I decided that I wanted all my children to have the same father, but, I was determined to be married first. I made some crazy choices, and wasn't paying attention. I wanted my children to be aware and pay attention. In turn, they wanted this for the many friends they associated with that they felt was unloved.
This is the essence of K.I.D.S. Inc.
The hands below is displaying our physical being our only differences; Truly, what race/nationality created any one person? None.
K.I.D.S. teaches from inside out. People are people, we understand "Children learn what they live," (Dorothy Law Nolte' author) we (KIDS) are aware that one can't go into the homes and tell the parents how to rear their children, but we can have their backs. Most are over stressed anyway. We strive to aid the young in growing into lovely and responsible and caring adults, as we once upon a time use to.
Desire to know more? Meet with me, challenge me, understand me, don't judge me. To see my abilities? Talk with some that I've helped. The website is to read about the work we have done so far and our plans for the future. We pray that you like what we do enough to want to know what you can do to help?
