At ReWritten our mission is nothing short of enriching the community and watching lives transform. Our resource facility is located at the center of a largely fatherless community. The void left by absent fathers and the challenges facing the children we work with are seen as more than sad statistics. They are seen as an occasion to which we rise. Through diversified programs and practical help, we work alongside families to create a productive and peaceful community.

At ReWritten we strive not to whitewash unsavory headlines, but instead to change lives — to rewrite the headlines for the better.

Our programs are varied and highly relational. Board members, staff, and volunteers work to ensure not only the academic success of our children but to develop positive interpersonal skills in the community as well.
