THE MISSION:

Our Village Awakes' mission is to create a safe and productive space for the youth and be a helping hand and cause to the community. Our mission is to awaken our community to build, learn, and love together so that we arise to greater circumstances for our current and future generations.

 

Our Village Awakes understands that your environment shapes your train of thought and way of living. Once our children become exposed to the street life, they then become introduced to chances of involvement with drugs, crime, and violence. The youth need places to gather and be with their friends in the most positive environment possible. Community recreational centers are not available as they once were, and O.V.A. is taking the necessary steps to bring that substance back to our children because we know it takes a village to raise a child. With our recreational centers, O.V.A. will obtain and use its space to allow children to be in their childhood essence and to keep them interacting positively with arts, home economics, sports, and more. The space will also be used for feeding the less fortunate rather it is children or adults in need, with dinner nights and free breakfast. Community centers will develop in DeKalb and Fulton Counties and then branch out to other surrounding counties.

 

By providing for and assisting our communities, O.V.A. will be an assistance to households in need of rental-mortgage and utility assistance, along with household items such as diapers, children's clothing, and many other needs that come to our attention and is requested. Utilizing our neighborhood youth, we will assist our elders with yard work, food delivery, etc. O.V.A. will make itself available as needed, and as events take place which affect our community.

 

With mental health being a major factor in the development of our village, O.V.A. will partner with psychology professionals to provide mental illness help and counseling for households and individuals that are experiencing unbalances within their lives.  Moreover, O.V.A. will step up to the causes that arise in our communities which hinder us from growth.
