Initiatives and Programs

Freedom Tour - The Freedom Tour is an education and travel experience that serves as a means to get youth and adults alike from inner city NY to learn the true history of their country and the role their ancestors played in not only building it physically through forced labor, “aka” slavery, but also how they designed many cities and structures that folks marvel over today.

What we do: Travel

The "Healthier Hood" - The Healthier Hood initiative was inspired by investor, music producer and community builder Miles "Hollyhood" Casso's personal ambition to attain optimal health. This initiative is a double entendre, as it not only celebrates and highlights Miles' personal efforts and accomplishments, it's geared to bring information regarding all aspects of health to the various "Hoods" of America and then to find practical ways to implement the aforementioned information. 

 

We focus on the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and financial health of individuals and communities at large. We have no set way. We share what we have learned, whether through personal account or through filtered information, and work to make it relatable so that anyone may be involved.

 

Join us on the path to achieve a "Healthier Hood".
