The only trauma-informed youth center in Ward 8.


Our mission is to support traumatized youth that chose to create a future worth fighting for; instead of fighting one another.  This is achieved by centering a social-emotional approach to achieving social justice. We call it #thefutureDC we want to see. 


Since we began on April 2, 2012, our work has been :

  • 100% trauma-informed.

  • 100% youth-led.

  • and 100% rooted in the Ward 8 commUNITY.

At The Future Foundation, resilient teens (ages 13+), their families (if they have any), and their educators master individual wellness practices, peer-to-peer support, and community organizing skills required to transform the adverse impacts of childhood trauma into triumph.
