Our motto is; “we are a Giver of Life, the Heart & Soul of our family. We’re not defined by the Color of our Skin, the Texture of our Hair, nor how we speak with our cultural accents. We define who we are, who we want to be, and how we want people to see us, when we stand tall in our community, in our faith and most of all in our culture. We are also Survivors, Warriors by design, a Fighter in Life…..we are Strong, Beautiful, Imperfect, and Loved!
