Approval of Affirming Youth Center

We are happy to announce that Jonathan Spikes Foundation, Inc. has officially secured office space located inside of the Miami-Dade Community Action and Human Servies, Edison Community Resource Center for the Affirming YOUth Center. On Tuesday, January 23rd, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners gave the final approval to lease office space.

“The Affirming YOUth Center will be a safe space for youth with access to resources to enhance their sense of community and well-being,” says Jonathan Spikes founder of Affirming YOUth.

The center will be utilized to provide PEAS (Psychological, Emotional, Academic, Social) therapeutic services, conflict resolution and psycho-educational classes for the youth and families of Miami-Dade County. These components are designed to prepare them to succeed in academic, social, and their career settings.

Special thanks to CAHSD Director, Lucia Davis-Raiford for supporting this initiative and to Vice-Chairwoman of Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners, Audrey M. Edmonson, for sponsoring this legislation.

“I’m really excited that we have an opportunity to reach and empower more youth and families in our service area, says Dr. Tangier Scott, Chairwoman of the Jonathan Spikes Foundation Board of Directors.

Stay tuned for our grand opening that is being scheduled for early fall.
