A Home Away From Home
That’s what Life Pieces To Masterpieces (LPTM) provides to the hundreds of African American young men and boys growing up in Washington, DC’s most poverty-stricken and volatile neighborhoods. And, in a city with the highest rate of poverty in the United States, there is an urgent need for this loving, safe environment for expressing fear, anger, hope, and joy.

Join us and help ensure that every child in our community has a strong support system and the prospect of big dreams and a bright future. Learn more
