The abundance of Hope Center has firmly declared racism as a major public health crisis.

As an organization committed to promoting health and well-being, we recognize the critical need to address systemic racism and its pervasive impact on marginalized communities. We are dedicated to prioritizing communities that have been most affected by the effects of racism. We invite all stakeholders to join us in this crucial effort to promote equity, justice, and inclusivity in our society.

AofH has taken a multifaceted approach to address the impact of racism on our communities. One area of focus is on breaking the school-to-prison pipeline, which disproportionately affects students of color and contributes to the perpetuation of systemic racism.

Through our agency's provisions, we aim to promote alternatives to punitive disciplinary measures and instead provide resources and support to students who may be struggling with behavioral or emotional challenges. By prioritizing restorative justice practices and providing community-based interventions, we can disrupt the pipeline that pushes vulnerable students into the criminal justice system.

We recognize the urgent need to create a more just and equitable society, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to this critical work.

​The Abundance of Hope Center works collaboratively with families, schools, and other community partners to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline and give youth their best chance to thrive. AofH offers crisis intervention services for youth aged 12- 26 focusing on medium and high-risk youth.
