Ernest Wade Meeks - Visionary & Founder

Visionary and Founder

Founder Ernest Wade Meeks is a man with a dream and a vision, as well as a self-motivated entrepreneur. He is a regular Christian man with a heart of gold and a desire to help people who may need a second or third chance. The focus is on people less fortunate, or who have been through something in life, and may just need others who really care to reach out to them.  He has longed for this and has had this vision in his head and on his heart for quite some time.  Now, it is finally getting into motion and he won't stop until he sees this great vision come to life.


Our staff members are a diverse group of individuals with a wide range of skills and expertise. Our goal is to make a difference in your life and those around you. Don't just stand on the sidelines—get engaged in your community.
