CHOICES, Inc. – Children Have Options in Caring Environments – was founded in 1986 by Gina Frazier and Anita Johnson Patten. Led by their dreams and dedication to provide options in safe and caring environments for youth, Gina and Anita started a foster care agency. They were able to train and license five homes very quickly and provided six children with caring environments in those homes within months of opening their doors.
The Foster Care Program has grown steadily over the years. Gina and Anita worked as an amazing team. Gina served as Executive Director of CHOICES, while Anita explored how we could provide even more services for kids and families in our community.
The Victory Project breaks down the walls of captivity. By undoing the youths isolated experiences, we expose them to the potential of a positive socio-economic standing through our 3E’s Curriculum: Education, Entrepreneurship, and Enlightenment.
Vision: Offering America’s youth an alternative to the street.
Mission: [Without government funding] Empower young men to discover the life God intended by mastering self-awareness, self-sufficiency, and selfless service, building an uncommon alliance with uncommon youth for uncommon results.
All throughout the year, we will continue to have opportunities to collectively GO and serve people and organizations in our community. This year our focus will be two fun and exciting serving projects during the summer with Choices and the Victory Project.
