Niche (Services/Products your company provides:)
Assisting grandparents raising grandchildren and kinship caregivers.

We offer resources and referrals, social services, second-generation parenting education, financial enlightenment, and advocacy.
About Me:
"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." [Helen Keller]

I am a motivational speaker on the topics of new-aged grandparents', teen and young adult issues, holistic living and self-examination to name a few. I am the Founder and CEO of Enlightenment Services, Inc. a non-profit organization to uplift and empower individuals and families. It promotes healthy living through enlightened decision making to overcome challenging life issues. I am also the Founder and Executive Director of The G.R.A.N.D.E. Coalition (Grandparents Recreating A New Direction Everyday) which facilitates support groups, social services, resource and referral and second-generation parenting education for grandparents raising grandchildren in Katy, TX;.

Target Market(s)
Relatives as parents
Urgent Needs and Compelling Desires of Target Market(s)
6 million families nationally and over half a million families in Texas are grandparent headed households. Another 100,000 families in Texas are children living with relatives. This is a growing population that require endless support in second-generation resources and education. Financial enlightenment and preparation training, and bothlegal and legislative advocacy are additional needs of this group.

One of the reasons that this assistance is so compellingly necessary is the oftentimes abrupt nature by which these families acquire the children in their care. Due to domestic violence, financial inability, substance abuse, incarceration, mental illness and death, to name a few on the parts of the parents creates immediate responses on the parts of the caregivers. This means that the caregivers are most likely ill-prepared to address the numerous needs of the child(ren) they take on.
Opportunities said Target Market(s) would love to invest in
The market of grandparents raising grandchildren and relatives-as-parents would be most interested in services that cater to the family. Particularly in today's economic market, families are trying to find creative ways to meet their family's needs on a revised budget. Thus the following may be of interest to this group:

Financial planning/counseling
Health/Medical Plans
Computer literacy training
Computer products
Self-employment opportunities
Benefits of investible opportunities to Target Market(s)
One of the most prominent opportunities individuals and families in this group want/need is more time and money. Products that could offer either or both would be quite beneficial.
"Other interests" (Traveling, wine, books, etc...):
My personal interests are:
Reading, writing, gardening

My professional passions are:
Community Service, Public Speaking, Writing
What does your company do to focus on its purpose?
The primary purpose of my organization is to offer the greatest assistance when and where it is most needed. We are committed to helping families thrive and move beyond their challenges, not simply offer theoretical advice or take a band-aid approach. We offer hands-on assistance and support i.e. we become a part of the family.
