Men & Women of Scars
Men of Scars was founded by Hardie Blake, a pastor, community activist and entrepreneur in the community for over 30 years. Out of a desire to help men with "pasts" that sometimes hinders their future, he began the outreach to men & boys with scarred pasts. As a role model and mentor, Pastor Blake works tirelessly assisting men with such issues as employment, job training, empowerment training, personal counseling, court issues and support in setting and accomplishing goals. The program was soon expanded to include women & girls.
Men & Women of Scars - Transformed!
The Men & Women of Scars Outreach approach to transforming the lives of men whose past or present life has been scarred by anger, drugs, crime, violence, incarceration, gangs, felony convictions, delinquent child support, abandonment, school dropout and minimum spiritual and social skills is a work in process. Through effective training and caring guidance and help, the lives of boys & men can be transformed and given opportunity to help transform the lives of other men. "Success is for those who want it and take action to get it."
