In November of 2009 the organization was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization, in the State of Illinois, and on Christmas Eve of that year undertook its first project, the Gift of Warmth, which is a program that provides winter garments and a warm meal to the homeless families and individuals in need. Since that time the organization has continued the distribution of winter garments each Christmas Eve, while also developing programs specifically targeting the youth of the community and working to provide them with non-violent alternatives through community service. Programs like the Young Entrepreneurs program focuses on Core Curriculum, bolstering the tools needed to prepare youth for college, career, and basic life skills by increasing their proficiency in literacy and math while putting those basic principles into action through real life applications. Although the focus is on teens and young adults, specifically individuals between the age of 11 and 24, the programs are open to anyone in the community who would like to get involved.
