Our Mission Statement
A youth development program designed to help youth ages of 15 – 19 to develop awareness and abilities to become productive citizens of their homes, communities and the world.
K.I.D.S. began as a one-woman mission when my children were growing up. They would bring other children from the community over to our house to talk with me, especially the ones needing some adult help.
Some would talk about that they didn’t have a place to stay – or that they were afraid if they went out in the streets, they would get themselves in trouble. Some would ask for something to eat – or borrow some article of clothing or footwear.
But mainly, these children – primarily in junior high or high school – would come to talk with me, just to talk. I thoroughly enjoyed our endeavors together through talk and action. Little by little, I began to explore the possibility of doing more. Not long thereafter, the concept of K.I.D.S. came to me – and I have been working towards the fulfillment of that concept ever since.
As “Ms. Sherina” — as the children call me – I have been actively involved in transforming the lives of teens for over 20 years.
I ask you to join me and others who know we must save our children. It will take all of us working together to make that happen. If anything here on this website touches your heart or your mind, I encourage you to contact me, or contribute, in whatever way you are led to do so.
I sincerely welcome your input and ideas – and if our paths never cross, may something here inspire you to take the next step towards helping a teen or young adult in your life.
May our efforts serve the children to the best of and beyond our abilities, and may you find this site a comfort, and a powerful resource.
