Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2012
A Place Called Home is pleased to add the Omidi brothers, Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi and their non-profit organization No More Poverty (nmp.org) to its long list of supporters. The South Central youth center offers free programs and enrichment services to increase the academic performance and improve the social behaviors of the disadvantaged young people who live in this challenging, low-income area.
“The goal of our center is to increase the likelihood that the young people will stay in school and go on to higher education and viable jobs,” says Scott Culbertson on behalf of A Place Called Home. “We can only offer our free education, athletic, creative arts, and mentoring programs with the support of charitable, caring people like the Omidis. Thank you for helping us to empower these young people to go on to lead happy, successful lives.”
