Giving back through life-changing experiences.
AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY VILLAGE Cares: Our Response to COVID-19 - Millions of people across the globe are facing tremendous hardships, and the community that AAFV serves everyday is among the most vulnerable. While this pandemic is new, the underlying needs are not, and the COVID-19 crisis brings to the surface many of the issues that our children and families have experienced for far too long.

Family, we will do our best to answer your questions. We will have the type of conversations you would have in your living room or at the kitchen table or just relaxing and chilling at home with your close family & friends. No titles, no labels, no foolishness; just good old fashion real talk about what concerns us as a family and a race of people while finding the solutions to help make a positive difference where it is needed most.
We would like to take this opportunity to share with those who genuinely care, and with others who just seem to not have a clue, in addition to those who are so quick to say, "just get over it!" As concerned parents we need to shine a light addressing why it is not always as simple as "just getting over it."
YOU ARE EITHER PART OF THE SOLUTION, OR PART OF THE PROBLEM
Ask yourself, which role do you play? Should we have real conversations with our non black family and friends or continue to have feel good surface conversations. Should we continue to suppress our deepest feelings concerning racism and injustice? We hope to have an open dialogue with those who don't seem to understand our plight, but who are interested in learning and helping the betterment of our community while re-learning how to take care of family and home.
OUR VILLAGE FATHERS & SONS
While we are grateful for all of the resources that are available for our mothers and daughters, we do not want to overlook our fathers and sons. There's simply not enough resources for our MEN, fathers & sons. Let's work together to change this scenerio and make a real difference in the family household.
Young People, Respect Yourself By Respecting Your Elders
Of course you can not give what you do not have for yourself. Need help learning how to gain self-respect for yourself and others?
We all need help from time to time. Remember, real respect is earned, not bought.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions of families in need. Your generous donation will fund our mission. Together We Can!
