It is a known fact that every individual has a basic urge/desire to accomplish one ultimate “dream”. It is the driving force of their lives and they strive to achieve this-but sometimes they get derailed, either by choice or circumstance. For those who find themselves “off track” there is a viable alternative. That is the basic tenet under which the Love and Peas Foundation was founded.
The intervention of the Love and Peas program begins by befriending children and families in “poverty”. It starts by gathering their perspectives as to what led to their particular circumstances, and then, by using this information, create an action plan to accomplish their ultimate life vision. During this process the previously identified pitfalls will be addressed in order to assure a higher probability of success. Part of the process involves provision for mentoring as a means of connecting these individuals to pertinent resources. Then, having achieved a respectable level of recovery, the revitalized families will be enlisted to share their knowledge with new clients (“pay it forward”). This is the Love and Peas Foundation’s program, a four tiered system best described using the acronym ACCT (Acquaint, Connect, Cultivate, Transform).
