WHO WE ARE

WE ARE LEAH’S HOPES AND DREAMS

Leah’s Hopes and Dreams (LHD) creates opportunities in the lives of youth, underprivileged families and the less fortunate.

We are a 501c3 organization with an emphasis on God, education, and programs that support sustainable behavioral changes. We serve our target population within the communities in which we live, work, and worship; Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, and surrounding areas.

We also have a global focus with partnerships in Ghana, West Africa and the Bahamas. LHD recognizes the far reaching economic and socio-economic impact of poverty and the role it plays to influence the mind, body, and spirit (sharing God’s love even in the darkest places).

HISTORY

VISION

Our desire is to become a support partner to those in need. We recognize that poverty, homelessness, and helplessness are epidemics that destroy the lives of children, families, and individuals. Our goal is to demonstrate the love of God as we become vocal advocates and partners with those we serve.

MISSION

We help through education, encouragement, motivation and support. LHD empowers and educate youth to express themselves through artistic outlets and program mentoring. We strive to establish healthy relationships built on trust and open communication.

GOAL

To equip our youth to fulfill their purpose and destiny through character education, encouragement, motivation and support. To empower and educate them to express themselves through arts , crafts and other outlets.

Many times in our lives we have encountered and will continue to encounter things that will make us want to quit. Psalm 90:12 says “Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.” This book was written to encourage you to keep moving forward in the Lord, trusting that when you take one step he will take the other. Don’t give up. Keep trusting, Keep Loving and Keep believing. You can’t lose if you keep your eyes focus on the Christ. Christ is the author and finisher of your faith. With faith we can move mountains. Anytime you feel like you’re at the end of yourself, don’t quit, find a song of praise to remove that spirit of heaviness. In the NAME OF JESUS!
