We empower people to revitalize their own communities, starting with a conversation about the concerns most important to them. Through TEA Group conversations, people start to connect their experiences with each other and build support within their own communities.

We know that people in economically depressed communities are busy trying to take care of their families despite tight budgets and stressful situations. These challenges bring tremendous emotional stress that make people feel alone in their struggles.

Common challenges and life situations include:

  • Lack of quality education

  • Gun violence

  • Health concerns and access to health care

  • Need for quality jobs with fair pay

  • Grandparents raising grandchildren

What matters to you matters to us.
