Vision Statement

TFNCSA exists so that all youth can THRIVE

Our Mission

TFNCSA will provide a family-oriented environment where all youth we serve can develop academic, athletic, and social skills that are foundational in making sound decisions and reaching their fullest potential.

TFNCSA is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is committed to establishing an environment that incorporates the community and all of its resources to nurture and support the emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical well-being of each child. Our dedication is to equip each child with information, mentoring, and support that leads to better decision making and the desires to achieve more than what their environment may display or what odds lie against them. We believe that education and opportunities can create the substance that dreams and aspirations are made of.

Specifically, TFNCSA uses sports as a "magnet" to attract children into our organization. By providing gang prevention services, educational programs, social activities, community service projects, TFNCSA is able to provide leadership, mentorship, and unite the families of each child to create a cohesive, supportive "village" structure that creates the environment that allows each child to THRIVE.

Our Team

Our dedicated team are passionate about providing consistency and leadership for each child. Each team member works tirelessly to not only achieve but exceed our goal as a charity. The only thing that is more rewarding than seeing the sustained improvement of each child educationally, behaviorally, and physically is being able to reward each child for their hard work by providing educational and social outings.
