About Darlene & Friends

We believe that there is a strong enough spirit, great enough knowledge, powerful enough passion and sufficient bounty within reach to meet most if not all needs within the regions—and that no one should lack in body, mind or spirit.

Our vision and purpose is to identify and mobilize the best of our regions given resources for the betterment of the individual, the family and the community at large.

We will use the best and last tool available to motivate and inspire those in need and those that can help.
We will educate and connect where resources are available.
We will search for solutions where none readily exist!
We will call attention to needs unmet and we will recognize the triumphs and achievements of life both large and small.
