Our Mission Statement

To provide opportunities for young people and their families to reach their full potential and instill confidence to make healthy choices. While our focus is to keep families aware of Sickle Cell/Sickle Cell Trait and the importance of making great choices, we believe that the most effective way to do this is by addressing the root causes through education.
