Are You a Present Parent?

Of all the things the moms I work with struggle with, hands-down one of the biggest things is being present with their kids.

Streets Made Me A Better Person

Maranisha is the kind of girl you just want to be around. With her beautiful smile, infectious laugh, and sunny disposition, she’s someone the younger girls look up to. She started going to Streets three-and-a-half years ago, when she heard all her friends talking about it. She’s now actively involved, regularly attending the camps, block parties, bible studies, and clubs.

Ahmad Tutio started attending Streets Ministries several years ago when a staff member invited him to join the Thursday night get-togethers.

Since then he's been coming almost every day.
