The Potential Foundation promotes the welfare of the youth by providing emotional, social and economic support to low-income communities. We will provide resources and services to communities that would otherwise not have access to them. We will impact the next generation by fostering meaningful and lawful opportunities for its youth.
We look to flourish our youth by first impacting their communities. We will build a presence within these low-income communities to make all resources readily available to the families. We will create a safe place for the youth to gather and obtain what they need. In addition, we will continually invest into the young adults as they transition into their post-secondary journey by remaining a consistent positive influence. We will yield a greater generation of graduates that are afforded the same opportunities because of our involvement in their lives. This is the future of The Potential Foundation.
