VOICE is dedicated to providing the tools and techniques for improving the lives of the people within our communities. We believe in EMPOWERING PEOPLE to find and implement effective solutions to the problems facing local communities. We believe that everyone should have the same opportunities to make the best of themselves regardless of where they were born. We focus on facilitating the empowerment and development of local leaders and volunteers to work their own way through their own problems. After all, nobody understands the plight of a community better than the people that live within it.

VOICE activists believe that everyone is either PART OF THE SOLUTION OR PART OF THE PROBLEM. We believe we are stronger together and that our society is only as prosperous as our most disadvantaged community.

The only requirement for joining VOICE is a dedication to being PART OF THE SOLUTION. Which are you?

Voice Outreach

TYPICAL EXAMPLES OF VOICE COMMUNITY OUTREACH:

Paint houses of people who need help to improve look of each house. May need to help clean yard as well. ONLY OUTSIDE OF HOUSES. Great community activity. Local contractors invited!

Find local coaches and volunteers interested in opening parks to allow sports and other activities so children of all ages have a safe place to play. Police Benevolent Association might be willing to act as some of the coaches. Also bring in young cosmeticians, fashion designers, etc. to work with interested children. Wide range of activities to raise self confidence and self esteem.

Get lighting put in parks through cooperation with city or county officials. Cuts down on pregnancies.

Develop community gardens for community members to grow fresh produce.

Have a market day that includes garden produce and various things made by local people so it becomes a money producing and social event either monthly or weekly. Food trucks invited.

Help promote community business and local hiring because of less crime, cleaner and more attractive environment and local people empowered.

Where there are drug houses or foreclosed houses that the city or county can buy at a reduced price, we help community clean them up and turn them in to tutoring centers for children to be tutored in using a part time administrator and volunteers tutoring.

Work with pastors to develop a day care center for the community children who are currently alone until adults come home.

9. Work with local people who want to run for office with training and organizing their campaign. This includes introducing them to DEC andgetting them involved in precinct work, candidate training, etc.

Have seminars at churches and public places as to what voting in elections does for their community by making their zip code an important one for candidates and officials to pay attention to. We need a speaker who represents VOICE who goes around speaking on the subject. Someone they have seen helping them in other ways.

Have city hall agree to allow various artists to have a space on the commercial buildings that they get a permit for, to paint art in that space. You can see that in areas of Miami like Wynwood area or lower Manhattan.

Work with principal of school to find projects the children can do that we can help with that would improve the atmosphere and be of help.

Working with the school system and a principal, allow Samantha Lamothe to begin a pilot program of Mindful Meditation in the elementary school. It eliminates suspensions and detentions.

If possible, find way to do vocational training for unemployed or under employed.

Lake Worth

Lake Worth is a small town about mid way between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. As with every town, there are undeserved areas that need help to reach their full potential. It has been our experience that when the people in the area see that we come to them with resources but that they must be partners with us to make their community a place that is a pleasure to live in with opportunities they never had, they become EMPOWERED! When that happens, they take control of their lives by having their own Candidate Night during elections, they run for office themselves and they take control of their community.

Our motto is You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. We need people with passion for helping others and money to be part of the Solution! Everything is better when we work together. That is why we are successful. We use a holistic approach by seeing what is needed, then looking for organizations and individuals with certain talents. We ask them to join us so that together all of us are taking part in the effort to improve the community and EMPOWER the people living there.

In order for any of this to happen, we need money donations as well as in kind donations and volunteers to help with the different projects required to transform the community.

If you help these undeserved communities, we guarantee you will feel better about doing your part to make a little part of America and Palm Beach County better. Then we move on to another town EMPOWERING another undeserved community.
