Pastor Hardie and Sister Perl help couples understand how to show the kind of love and respect that builds lasting marriages, respectful children and supportive extended family members. We provide training, counseling and education services in the areas of personal growth, health and economic development for the entire family through direct programming and selective collaborations.
Program offerings continue, helping the family with youth development through our Sons and Daughters of Destiny programs and connecting the family to needed health care resources through health care assistance. Our Men and Women of Scars Programs assist ex-offenders while our economic development programs assist with financial planning, job readiness, access to capital and more.
On 11/2/2017 the City of South Bend kicked off its Inclusive Economy initiative at the Charles Martin Center. There, a report by Dr. Muhammad and Prosperity Now, shared information on the wealth gap in the South Bend Community. In that report, to no surprise, African Americans fared the worst. Many questions were raised, but only one matters. What are we doing about it?
We’re excited to be back, and we welcome you back to the Center. Our hours are 10 am – noon, 1 pm to 5pm Monday – Thursday and other times by appointment. We offer a great space for members to meet, work and plan. And we’ve got some amazing programs in the works to help you grow your business and strengthen our community.
