Our vision for every child, life in all its fullness; Our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.
All of Us & You is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Inspired by our Christian values, we are dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people. We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
All of Us & You Center (A.O.U.N.U) is dedicated to serving and promoting youth initiatives through highly structured and positive programs designed especially for the youth of Chicago, IL-Englewood area. A.O.U.N.U remains dedicated and committed to the people that comprise the entire South region of Illinois and proudly represent the city of Chicago.
Through charitable outreach and hands on efforts, cause-related initiatives and grass roots programs in the areas of Education, Neglected Children and Families, Health and Wellness, Drug and Alcohol Problems, and Volunteerism, the Program strive, and do, consistently make a difference in the community.
The goal of A.O.U.N.U youth programs department is to enhance opportunities and improve the quality of life for children in the Englewood area by taking active, hands-on leadership positions in health, sportsmanship, education and community transitions.
A.O.U.N.U pool the resources of our corporate and non-profit partners with the star power of the organizations and its team players to capture the attention of children, while striving to improve their attitudes about learning and healthy lifestyles; all the while delivering critical services to those school-aged youth who would be difficult to reach academic levels without the leverage of a strong mentor.
Intelligence, and Compassion- Are these concepts incompatible in the world of fast-paced business and competitive profit margins? Here at A.O.U.N.U. CENTER, we don't think so. We think that the best kind of compassion is "smart" compassion. Its strategic thinking and responsible resource management. It's good business at its best.
We are now living in more critical times than ever before, and the need is greater to create outreach programs for inner-city youth. We are losing our youth to crime, drugs, alcohol, violence, teen pregnancy, prison and homelessness. The focus should be, “what could I do to make a difference?” Statistics continue to ring true. The odds are against our troubled youth, but this does not have to be the conclusion of that negative commentary. Not just globally but nationally and locally, communities are experiencing, in some cases, overwhelming odds in the battle to combat this epidemic. It has been proven that communities play an important role in reducing hardships (“It takes a village to raise a child” concept). We are convinced that organizations such as AOUNU can play a paramount role in providing alternative choices; thereby, providing a solution to this growing problem. The responsibilities lie with each of us. We must answer the call. We can make a difference.
OUR Major Goals:
To operate a motivational self-help center for youth ages 12-18 in the Chicago-land Englewood area. A Program that would supply the best motivational speakers, resources, entertainment, music, movies, etc. Help our youth realize that they can become whoever they would like to be within this lifetime. Our goal is to create and enhance our youth by obtaining, and teaching them how to live independently and have dominion to reign over this world's system and there community transitions. Advising them to stay off the Streets and stay in school, preparing them with programs for preparation for High School and College. Teaching today’s youth to take pride in their good choices and accept the consequences of poor decisions. Here we demonstrate accountability.
