Family Personal Development (PD) is a non-profit organization focused on increasing socioeconomic mobility within households by integrating organizational, research-based practices within the home. Basically, we have the H.O.T.S for families - Household Organizational Transition Strategies. Our organization will help families become more aware of and gain access to resources and information, as well as provide support with implementing effective strategies to improve health, relationships, education, finances, and goal achievement.
Much of the information needed to be successful is only known to professionals because it is typically only used in a professional setting or organization. Many of these professionals will apply this knowledge in their own personal lives to further their success. Unfortunately, only about 8% of professionals are black so few of us have access to the knowledge that could help us move up.
This is why we formed Family Personal Development, Inc. Because when it comes to upward mobility, urban cities like Charlotte, NC are last (50 out of 50) and so are most black families.
