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.

LPTM helps young people turn life challenges into opportunities for self-reliance, resilience, and success. Our programs teach integrity, character development, and leadership skills. 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
