I am saddened by the horrific death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The inequalities that our country faces are tangible and we acknowledge the visible pain throughout our nation.

AGB is here to help restore our communities and partner to strengthen individuals and organizations that have been gravely affected.

Growing up in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s Southside, I’ve built this organization as a ministry that assists people in need. Since 2001, AGB has created hundreds of professional opportunities for adults, particularly minorities in underserved areas of Chicago. The demographics of people we serve include individuals living in 22 of the most violent communities in Chicago.

AGB is taking action through workforce development and life skill training to restore, build, and mobilize our communities from the inside, out. On Saturday, June 20th, Always Giving Back Foundation will adopt 100 community families for our “Reset, Renew & Rejoice” event. AGB will provide much-needed food and essential items to those affected by COVID19 & unemployment.

Although I weep at the state of our nation, I am hopeful that we will rise together through the spirit of “Always Giving Back”.
