We're continually working hard to improve communities throughout the city. If you're interested to see what we've been doing recently (especially if you want to help), check out our project list.

Mission & Vision

We have a simple, but robust mission: to help people empower themselves. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including education, awareness, and personal development. We want to make a difference.

I have been incredibly fortunate to build bridges with significant people and organizations that many have difficulties that I see every day. I can’t imagine what it’s like not to have a genuine connection - and I think it’s a shame that in a city as great as ours, anyone here should.

With that desire in my heart, I preside over ESC. We’re all looking to make a difference in our city, and I believe that by focusing on our communities, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of important social connections, and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in understanding, love, care, and a better world.

If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's serving food aid in a kitchen, painting walls of a newly repaired home, or collecting donations, we need you. And so do communities in need.
