Building a solid foundation for the future...

Mission

The Clarissa Manuel Foundation (CMF) was founded to prevent further deterioration of the community and juvenile delinquency through educational enrichment programs.  The foundation will focus on three areas to reach the goal: 

- Educational Academic Awareness
- Financial Independence
- Physical & Mental Well Being

By focusing on these areas, the foundation will provide tools for the community to thrive in three of the most important parts of life: learning, finance and health. 

EDUCATIONAL ACADEMIC AWARENESS

An
educated community strives to create and build. CMF will support and mentor youth to  encourage educational advancement through:

Academic excellence and pursuit of
higher education

Literacy: Encourage more reading

Job Skills/Career Development

FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE


A
financially independent community creates wealth for itself and grows. CMF will promote financial independence by educating the community and providing local resources for:


Personal Credit
: Understanding credit and repairing bad credit


Budgeting
:  Making choices and reaching goals


Entrepreneurship: Learning how to 
own your own business


Ownership:  Loan options and programs


Retirement & Estate Planning:  Keeping
 what you’ve earned


PHYSICAL & MENTAL WELL BEING


A
healthy community does not create a burden on itself or society as a whole.  CMF will strive to encourage behavioral changes for physical and mental well-being by:


Supporting causes to reduce the risks 
associated with overweight and obesity


Community outreach, physical and cultural 
diversity activities

Disease Management: Encourage
 screening and promote healthy lifestyles for prevention of chronic health diseases

Encourage minorities to support research
efforts focusing on chronic diseases which are disproportionate for their ethnic groups


Mental Well-Being: Elevate awareness of 
the mental health disorders that affect underserved communities

Dispel the negative stigma associated
with mental health services
