The F.I.N.D Design

"Thank God for sending F.I.N.D. Design when he did because not even I could have made the investment into these girls lives that Kara, Sharese, and the TFD staff have accomplished. In addition to providing some guidance in navigating through life, The F.I.N.D. Design has expanded the girl’s view of what it means to be a woman. When you grow up in Napier, it’s possible for your world view to be limited to the 8 blocks of chaos that surround you and to never experience anything but that. Everyone should be exposed to different life experiences, philosophies, and worldviews, something most of these girls weren’t privy to until Kara and Sharese came along. The girls of Napier have been brought to their knees by different trials, been carried away in different joys, and have learned unique bits of wisdom through the program. The change in their value system is priceless, the confidence in their voices is stronger, and their drive to become a better woman has humbled me." 
-J. Odessa Kelly, Program Director-J.C. Napier Community Center.

"They helped to shape my future and define my character."

"I didn't think people would change or open up...but as the sessions continued I've noticed a difference in everyone and these girls have become my sisters. I can talk to these girls and know I'm not the only one going through something."

"This program is very important to me because it helps me a lot. I have seen changes in myself. My grades have improved, my personality has changed and my attitude has gotten better. I am happy I earned mentee of the month because of my improvement."

I look forward to growing old with these people. I can't thank Mrs. Kara and Sharese enough for making me the person I am today...

- Dominique, Napier Sharp Mentee


This program has enhanced my ideas and output of what I go through on a daily basis whether it's good or bad... I love being around my friends and getting to bond and grow with each other. With the help of guidance, knowledge, and opinions on how to handle situations, my attitude has improved phenomenally!"
