We are a group activists in the Hollygrove area, who are deeply rooted in this community and care a great deal for and about our youth. We fully understand that we are a direct influence on our children’s lives. Our group plans to start a youth mentoring program for young men and young ladies. The focus of this program will be to promote manhood, protect womenhood, and most importantly, strengthen families. It is our hope that the residents of
Hollygrove will join in our efforts to “Save Our Selves”
