Social Service Programs
Developing Community Social Service Programs For the Fall of 2017 – 2020
MPH Inc. K – 5th Adopt-A-Classroom Project
Adopt- A- Classroom Project is designed to ensure that youth between the grades K – 5th grade will receive the necessary resources and attention that will enable them to develop fully in the areas of social, academic, cultural and physical development. We will be a support base for teachers and schools who could benefit from our assistance (no child will be left behind).
Snack Pack Project
The Snack Pack Project is a complementary aspect of the Adopt- A -Classroom Project where all children of the Adopt- A- Classroom Project will be provided three balance meals a day to be taken home to assist in their nutritional requirements. This program will be offered Friday evenings providing enough food for Friday (dinner), Saturday, and Sunday. Providing meals to children makes it possible to increase their attentiveness, focus, and overall desire to excel academically.
Father’s Day School Project
Father’s Day School Project is created to help develop a stronger bond between father and child and their relationship with the teacher. It seeks to have the father become more involved with the student’s education and not to rely solely on the mother. We ask each father or surrogate father to take their children to school on the opening day and follow-up meetings with the teacher(s) a minimum of once every two months. Psychologically, we have found that this plays a very important role in the development of a child’s academic success.
Senior Citizen and Veterans Restoration Project
This project will assist and aid the elderly and Veterans, of underserved communities, to create an environment of safety, health and security- for those who don’t have the necessary resources to improve or maintain their home and living conditions. We will engage professional volunteers to utilize their skills to renovate, restore, repair damaged property of senior citizens and Veterans’ homes. We will form partnerships with corporate America to assist in supplying us with the necessary materials to do home repairs.
Food and Clothing Homeless Project
We will partner with other organizations that serve communities who are in need of assistance in the area of food and clothing. By doing so, creates the best possibility to serve the most vulnerable populations in society. Presently, we have a program where we collect food, clothing, and shoes; distribute these items to churches and other nonprofits, etc. assisting the homeless and jobless sectors within our community.
Collecting Clothes, Coats, Shoes & Toys for Elementary School Children Project
Collaborate with schools that serves indigent school populations. The focus is to collect, disseminate clothing and /or shoes from community entities around the state to be utilized to provide clothing and/ or shoes for elementary aged children in need of such items, throughout the most impoverished areas of the metropolitan areas.

Also, the youth will create newsletters, magazines books, websites and TV productions with the objective of building teamwork and to promote a positive self-image of themselves and their community.
Community Block Development/Restoration Program
This program will identify sections of underserved communities to strengthen communities to foster excitement, beautification, safety, and healthy surroundings to their communities. Improving the physical structures of decaying homes, in keeping with building codes, would be provided to impoverished individuals. This work would be facilitated by trained certified contractors who would volunteer their labor and time. The work will be done by volunteers in the community in conjunction with the business sector, who will donate the necessary materials that will be needed for the completion of restoration and repairs to the homes. There will be a sliding scale on jobs and a small economically fee based upon one’s income.
Youth Sports & Discipline Program
This program will serve as a supporting cast for those youths who are at risk of becoming behavioral problems within the schools, family, churches and criminal justice system. We will try to refocus their behavior and attitudes in a positive manner, so positive growth and development can take place. By using sports as a vehicle to influence and change them, we seek to keep inner city youths from becoming a statistic in the criminal justice system of the U.S.A. This program will integrate sports and, the travel needed to participate, along with educational instruction as the major features of this program..The cumulative effect is to create a well rounded individual.

Kidney Foundation Walk (August 2016)
The National Kidney Foundation Kidney Walk is a fun, inspiring community fundraiser that calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. It’s also an opportunity for patients, family, friends and businesses to come together. Over 26 million Americans–that’s 1 in 9 adults–have chronic kidney disease and most are not aware of it. Because symptoms may not appear until the kidneys are actually failing, millions of people with kidney damage remain unaware and are not taking steps to protect the health of their kidneys.
