Our Vision

We envision a world where every child and family experiences the boundless possibilities that exposure offers. Aknew Approach aspires to rewrite narratives, break generational curses, and instill a future illuminated by unity, resilience, and limitless horizons. With every family we touch, we inch closer to a world where transformative experiences aren’t the exception, but the norm.

We count on volunteers to bring their unique skills and healing kindness to families to encourage their growth, knowing there are individuals, groups and corporations unselfishly volunteering their time, talent and resources to them.

We could not do all the critical work we do without the support of generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and organizations who share our belief in strengthening families and protecting children

We Are Committed To

  • providing system-impacted communities with non-traditional resources and programs that empower them to become change agents by renewing mindsets, developing skill sets, and creating assets.
  • breaking the cycle of recidivism and mental imprisonment by strengthening minority children and families through exposure, community organizing and advocacy.
  • collaborating with local, state, and government agencies that provide access to resources that will improve the quality of life for minority youth and their families impacted by the criminal justice system.
  • increasing public awareness of the underlying problems of the children and their families, who are victims of the criminal justice system through education, community organizing and advocacy.
