Do you need help?  Or would you like to help?

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

The vision and purpose of Darlene & Friends 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 latest tools 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.

We know that we cannot meet all of your needs on our own, but it is our intent to excite, energize and inspire each of our “Friends” to seek sources within the community to get the help they need and perhaps to inspire others.  Together we will make a difference in the lives of those who will go on to make a difference in the lives of others.

In that vision there will come the best of all rewards – that which you measure within your soul!
