6 new navigation centers. Gets it done.

Have you ever tried navigating community services for kids? It's all over the place.

And every adult will give you a referral. Or will only work with you if you come with a referral.

We're not doing referrals. These are children. Nobody's doing referrals.

90% or higher of our homeless youth have a smartphone. Will pay that bill before rent.

Keeps you connected.

6 navigation centers. Not shelters. Not bunk beds. A purpose. A well thought out point of view.

It's youth-centered. It's exceptionally thought out. It gets stuff done.

And brings everone together. All on the same page. No silos. Working together.

It's a business culture change. But we have to get over it. It's a results-oriented business.

Our kids require get-it-done people. In get-it-done communities.

And 6 new navigation centers. Gets it done.

Nobody controls your path but you. Nobody controls whether you succeed or fail but you.

Nobody controls the success of your business but you. Nobody controls your growth but you.

Nobody controls how much money is in yout bank account but you. Nobody controls what you do for a living but you.

Nobody controls whether you walk around acting like Jesus today but you. Nobody controls whether you walk around acting like the Devil today but you.

Nobody controls the number of customers that come through your door but you. Nobody controls the number of customers that walk out of your door but you.

There is no "they". There is no "them". There is no "system". There is no "that's how it is".

There's other people. And then there's you.

Be you. And do you.
