House Of Umoja, Inc.

Created in 1968, the House of UMOJA, Inc. has provided a life line to and positively shaped the minds and souls of over approximately 3,000 young urban males between the ages of 15 through 18 in Philadelphia. It also serves as an excellent Global Model for conflict resolution, mentoring, and helping to resolve the growing Global “Crisis of Boys”. The House of UMOJA, Inc.’s successful track record of working with and positively transforming youths has moved universities and institutions that include, but are not limited to, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Prevention and the Center for Disease Control to seek the House of UMOJA Inc.’s expertise in the gang reduction, youth programming, and community organizing. Former United States Presidents Jimmy Carter and the late Ronald Reagan have recognized the House of UMOJA, Inc. for its pioneering work which has been documented in published articles such as A Summons To Life, by Robert Woodson of the American Enterprise Institute in 1981 and The Violent Juvenile Offender by Paul DeMuro and Richard Allison of the National Council On Crime And Delinquency. During the 1990’s with funding from PIC and in cooperation with the Restaurant School, the House of UMOJA developed the Culinary Arts Component encouraging entrepreneurial independence through catering.

HOU has a rich 46 year history of service and has received over 100 awards for its work with at risk youth, ending gang warfare and community service.
