Martin Luther King Jr.
May 24, 2013-- With a tagline that reads, "Where hitting the bottom, begins the climb to new heights," the Delancey Street Foundation is a residential education center for drug addicts and ex-convicts. It currently operates a few facilities across the US, bringing hope and empowerment in communities where people are breaking out of cycles of incarceration and drug abuse . Their mission is rooted in showing residents that they themselves are critical contributors of positive change, not only in their own lives, but also in the lives of others like them. Reflected in their belief that everyone is both a giver and a receiver, the organization's model employs an "each-one-teach-one" process. Delancey Street's success has made them an expert in the field and they are sought after by other institutions and policy makers looking to find constructive solutions for our society's complicated issues.
