In August of 1993, R.E.D.E.E.M.E.D. Community Outreach was incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Its founder is Sister DeBorah Williams. She knew that five factors had to be put in place for the REDEEM projects to make an impact in enhancing the present community. These five factors include the following: providing Outreach Resource, Education, Economic Development, Employment, Empowerment, and Mentorship programs.
Thus, the name R.E.D.E.E.M Projects was born.
REDEEMED is a grassroots, faith-based nonprofit. We are committed to improving environmental health and providing safety, food, housing, and job training to the community. This endeavor began by developing co-operative gardens, a farmer’s market, and fruit orchards right where we live. They have been built inside adopted parks and on abandoned lots to replace drug infested and abandoned properties. The outreach introduces agribusiness and entrepreneurship to residents to HELP create generational wealth to sustain their own lives!
