Albert’s Story - Education and Mental Health

Albert Blake of the Department of Defense stands smiling with arms spread.

My causes are education and mental health. Growing up in public housing, I had limited educational resources. Albert Blake of the Department of Defense stands smiling with arms spread.

The public library was not near, and tutoring services were not readily accessible. Peers in my neighborhood could not relate to my educational aspirations. Educationally, I struggled during my formative years. Today, my quest has always been to provide and support educational opportunities and resources to those with limited resources. Mental Health is important because one’s state of mind not only affects yourself, but impacts your loved ones and community.
