Our mission is to offer youth and young adults (ages 10-24) holistic alternative solutions regarding their social (i.e. drugs, alcohol, low self-esteem, crime, gangs, lack of education and economic (basic daily survival) issues. We endeavor to do this by increasing awareness of the consequences of crime and negative behavior through education, prevention and intervention methods, empowerment strategies, and re-entry opportunities for ex-felons. Freedom from Unnecessary Negatives (F.F.U.N.) endeavors to 1) develop positive attitudes and behavior, and 2) change lifestyles through community rallies, workshops, seminars, mentoring, and counseling services resulting in:
- radical/positive/productive change in the mindsets of our youth and young adults,
- stronger family units,
- moral values,
- productive members of society,
- decreased crime and senseless killings to create safer neighborhoods, and
- economic empowerment.
