Dimplez 4 Dayz, Inc.'s mission is to assist children, youth, and families inside the inner-city community by providing unrestrained resources, programs, and encouragement to create a promising lifestyle.
Our goals are to create community opportunities by providing resources, hosting programs, and offering activities. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. We will encourage and offer support to individuals to smile behind adversity, turning dreams into reality.
Dimplez 4 Dayz, Inc. was founded by a 13-year old Philadelphia resident that wanted to reach her peers in nontraditional ways offering services that other organizations were not delivering in the community.
Dimplez had a dream to give back to families in SWP. On August 20, 2015, she turned her dream into a reality with her sister Maria and Mother, while hosting a back to school giveaway. The event serviced over 300 individuals.
Now 17 she, has gained a higher level of respect and insight with carrying out the needs of her peers and within the community.
Dimplez 4 Dayz plans to continue empowering individuals to create promising lifestyles.
