Guide Right

The Guide Right program includes youth-oriented programs such as mentoring, college preparatory programs and tutoring. More specifically, the program provides educational and occupational guidance, primarily inspirational and informative in character. Successful men are encouraged to place their experiences and life choices at the disposal of youth needing inspiration and counsel regarding their option of a life’s career. It also arouses the interest of the entire community in the problems of youth as they seek to realize lives of usefulness. Additionally, the programs of guide right focus on empowering young men to succeed through cultural understanding, mutual respect and character development, personal responsibility, goal setting and personal development. These guide right principles promote scholarly achievement and healthy communities.

    Shepherd’s Cove is an emergency shelter for women and children located in Capitol Heights, Maryland. It is a 100-bed facility that is operated and monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by caring professionals. Its primary goal is to provide a clean and safe environment for women with the ultimate goal of helping them obtain transitional or permanent housing. When women enter the facility, they and their children usually have many needs.

    We met with the organization leadership to identify critical needs of the facility and its residents. Some of these needs included book bags, electronic equipment, ear phones and other items to facilitate home study during the COVID pandemic. We provided those items to the facility.

    The Family Justice Center is a multi-disciplinary service center that provides a full array of services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and elder abuse. The Center allows local government and private community-based organizations to provide coordinated case management services to survivors in the aftermath of abuse. Those services include safety planning, counseling, and legal assistance.

    We provided electronic equipment to help meet the Center’s need for a comprehensive method to record the intake process. We also provided diaper bags for victims who arrived at the facility in desperate need of basic items.

    “ Thank you FWKF, for giving us your souls……”
