Freedom From Unnecessary Negatives, F.F.U.N., a community-based economic and social program for youths and young adults (ages 10-24), operating under a 501(c)(3) status, seeks to provide community-based and holistic alternatives to the economic, civic, and social lifestyles of at risk youth. Our solution includes prevention, intervention, and re-entry programs.
The purpose of this event is to bring families and communities together. We believe when we get to know and trust one another we can truly create safe communities and schools for our youth. This event is a critical step in showing young people how to appreciate and respect people from different backgrounds and beliefs.
