Patricia A. Jackson, LMSW
Executive Director

A woman who walks with God always reaches her destination.

Ms. Jackson graduated from Wayne State in 2002 with her Masters in Social Work and has worked tirelessly in impoverished areas of Detroit, learning first hand what hopelessness and despair looks like.

Ms. Jackson is a licensed Clinical Therapist with over 13 years working with children and families. Her passion for empowering youth and helping them to realize their true potential makes her perfect for this huge undertaking.

She has a heart for children and understands the connection between thought and behavior. In assisting someone in changing their thought patterns it can open the door to creating opportunity for growth and independence.
