A Change Generation's journey began on June 15, 2013 in Decatur, Ga  as an Independent Living Program, providing wrap around services to homeless youth who have aged out of foster care. We will forever be thankful to the Georgia Department of Family & Children Services for giving us the opportunity to change the lives of our foster care youth. In 2018, I felt I was losing sight of my mission due to being so caught up being the CEO, making sure all our contract requirements were being met and all the admin tasks were completed. 


In January 2019, I decided to reinvent the program and move it to Daytona Beach, Florida. As a Certified Life Coach, I'm looking to create a stronger impact on the lives of our youth. I developed a Life Coaching Program to help at-risk youth prepare for a better tomorrow. I'm confident with my troubled childhood experience and all of my life accomplishments that I will have a greater impact working one-on-one with the young adults.

I will meet with a selective group of young adults once a week to empower, motivate, create smart goals, and teach them life and social skills. A Change Generation will connect young adults to resources in the community.


The primary goal of the Life Coaching Program is to help at-risk youth PLAN & EXECUTE a successful plan for their life to become self sufficient young adults. We look forward to changing the lives of our youth in Daytona Beach one generation a time.
