The Bridge Between Your Past
I’m Worth It was established in 2003, beginning as a vision by Gloria White when mentoring the youth at her local church. By 2004, with the help of her husband Richard, the program incorporated "Abstinence" encouraging youth to remove themselves from any influence that could negatively impact their lives. Through open discussions and the transparency of their own lives, Gloria and Richard realized that there were individuals beyond the walls of the church that would benefit from the services this program offered. Today, the organization continues to evolve to service the great need in our communities for quality wrap-around services.
