Who We Are

A faith-based, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization established in 2005 by the late Homer D. Reagan to enhance the lives of the underserved and disenfranchised families in the community.  The organization serves over 6,000 families a year. This provides food and clothing along with needed access to other health and human services. We partner with the North Texas Food Bank and the Texas Department of Agriculture in support of eliminating hunger.
Our educational services have transitioned from after school tutoring of students in grades 3 – 5 to weekend enrichment workshops in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) for students in grades 6 - 8.  The STEM workshops offer expanded learning opportunities to youth who reside or attend school in communities at or below poverty level.  Students get to interact with college students and business professionals who have chosen and are successful in STEM related studies and professions. Our PEACE Scholarship Program has awarded over $6,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors.  

What We Do


MINDS THAT MATTER – Workshops for middle school age youth focused on strengthening the understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) through collegiate and professional facilitation and mentoring.

Family Restoration and Recovery - Provide professional out-patient confidential counseling or referrals by appointment and restorative support to clients whose lives have been impaired by the use of illicit drugs, alcohol or who have been previously incarcerated.
