BLACK NON-PROFIT FOUNDER BELIEVES INVESTING IN TODAY’S YOUTH CAN CHANGE THE NARRATIVE OF TOMORROW

As Art of Transparency (AOT) approaches its six-year anniversary, founder Mikkita Moore prepares to extend her focus to providing teenagers with the resources that will motivate and encourage their personal growth and development. Moore understands the circumstances and situations that equate to the lifestyles of those that some deem the invisible youth.

By building healthy relationships and self-awareness, she will provide young ladies and men with the tools they need to reach their full potential.

Helping to guide teens is Moore’s life’s journey. “Working with teens became my mission because there was no one that I could talk to when I needed to talk,” AOT founder Moore said. “Being a teen mom, I know it is not about the ones in your ear it’s about the ones you trust enough to be transparent with,” she added.

Dr. Rosalind Tompkins Founder Of
"
Mothers In Crisis" Helps To Relieve Stress And Inspire Hope In Challenging Times

Rosalind Tompkins, President and Founder of the nonprofit organization, Mothers In Crisis, Inc., has launched the 10,000 Balls for Hope Campaign and Essay Contest because too many people are experiencing record levels of stress in these uncertain times due to the coronavirus pandemic and the underlying stressors associated with navigating a new normal. Although hope is on the horizon because of the COVID-19 vaccinations, stress-related habits such as jaw clenching, grinding of teeth, and biting fingernails are increasing.

In addition, studies reveal that many health problems that are related to stress are affecting Blacks at alarming rates such as hypertension, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and gastrointestinal problems.

The good news is that help is here through the 10,000 Balls for Hope Campaign. Volunteers of Mothers In Crisis launched the campaign by giving stress balls to essential workers and others in need of hope. Along with the stress balls participants are encouraged to take “hope breaks,” says Tompkins.
