CARING FOR PEOPLE, ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME
Before our conception, Power Of One Foundation’s staff & volunteers have prepared hot meals from our homes and taken them out into the homeless community, often feeding 300-500 individuals deserving of a home-cook meal. Some of those individuals were at shelters such as the Santa Ana Civic Center while others were solely on the streets. The homeless community’s gratitude is sincere and heartwarming. This service is part of what prompted the desire to start Power of One Foundation.
The Power Of One Foundation has multiple initiatives, our largest being our Food Assistance Initiative. Our organization does and will continue to fight for the rights of the under-privileged and serve the needs of the less fortunate.
At the heart of every community is the youth, the next generation; through our organization we will supply a platform where the youth will learn the tools to become leaders in their communities and build skillsets to better their societies. Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future”. The youth reached by the Power of One Organization will be built for the future and continue on to become the next generation who lead our world.
“Power of One” means there is power in people uniting as one. There is nothing more powerful than unity.” The phrase "Power of One” is a call to remember we, humanity, are one race. One alone is weak, many as one is unbreakable. #WeAreOne
