We Believe Association is a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization that believes making a community stronger begins with clearly understanding its needs. We are committed to providing resources to many families in the community one need at a time that will make influential impacts in their lives, as we build and sustain healthy relationships. We believe there is no commUNITY without you.
Our first program was the Kick Stop Mobile Preloved Shop. The mobile shop was a store in which families can select new or gently used shoes and clothing to look good and feel good, despite their current economic situation. Underserved youth selected shoes that allowed them to feel empowered, and confident to begin a new school year. Like all nonprofits, We Believe Association was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020-2021.
Through community collaboration, We Believe Association participated in Back-to-School Project; Juneteenth Celebration; Community Customer Appreciation Trunk or Treat; Community RESET; and Walk in My Shoes Community Style.
The Listening Zone is our visionary program that targets underserved youth in Collin and Denton counties in Texas, who need a safe place to grow into their full potential as humans. The youth we will serve have diverse needs: youth in our area need a place to come to feel safe, heard, free and empowered; a safe place in which their experienced form of trauma (from mental health needs, abuse, neglect, drug addiction or sexual abuse) can be addressed through qualified counseling, mentoring, and tutoring to help with healing; an atmosphere to decompress, socialize with friends who may have shared experiences and learn how to find their voice to express emotions positively; lastly, we want our youth to increase in confidence, self-esteem and understanding.
