Vision from the Director

“In 2003, God gave me a vision of establishing an organization dedicated to helping others. At first, I embraced the idea, but after realizing the task before me, I began to run from it. What I learned is that when God calls you to do something, you cannot run from it. And, so I connected with people who also shared a similar vision as mine, and in September of 2006, Face to Face Enrichment Center was established. I am so excited about what the future has in store for the organization.

The Greater Baton Rouge and Greater Hammond communities will be able to have access to an array of information and resources that they can utilize in their everyday lives.  The support I have received thus far, from the community, colleagues, family, and friends has been great.  I look forward to moving Face to Face Enrichment Center in the direction which God leads me.  Thank you.”
