THE PRESCRIPTION TO END VIOLENCE AND CHANGE LIVES
Alumni and supporters of Alive & Free celebrated 30 years of transforming lives of young people at The Bently Reserve in San Francisco last Thursday, November 16, 2017.
Daija Foster flew in from Washington D.C. to share her story with over 300 guests.
“They helped me deal with my anger, fear, and pain which is something that I struggled with for years. Instead of going to see a therapist, coming to Omega was therapeutic.” Daija is a 2013 graduate of Spelman College in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience and is currently working on her doctorate.
Shamann Walton joined Alive & Free Omega Boys Club in 1993 with a tainted past. He had been in juvenile hall and had been expelled from numerous school districts. “For me, with the Omega Boys Club, I would say I might not be a free man today, and I may not be alive.” He completed the program and graduated from Morris Brown College. Today, Shamann is the President of the San Francisco Board of Education and is a shining example of what can happen when we positively support our youth.

Next week, communities around the world come together to give on #GivingTuesday!
#GivingTuesday was founded immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday – two days that are focused on consumption and spending.
While #GivingTuesday reminds us about the importance of giving, we also have Thanksgiving, a holiday that allows us to reflect and share what we are grateful for.
We want to let YOU – our amazing community – know how grateful we are for all that you do to keep our young people Alive & Free… And Educated!
