MAKE DALLAS ONE CITY TEAM MOMS CHALLENGE

Poverty has a direct link to crime (public safety), anger (domestic violence), unmet needs (sexual exploitation) and so many other life altering negative outcomes. As a Team Mom, Go-Getter, Game Changer and Youth Organization your success could mean life or death for so many of us, our loved ones and even you. The only way to effectively reduce youth poverty is to empower the youth through financial literacy and equip them with money making opportunities.
