NICE advocates wholeness that heals, both personally and collectively.  

We’re whole when we help reveal the light of our neighbor’s illumined thoughts, words and deeds. 

By thinking and acting as a Community, we can achieve anything.

His advocacy work through NICE, has resulted in the recruitment of hundreds community volunteers and advocates, representing a wide range of interests, including residents, faith-based groups, social services organizations, small businesses, and government agencies, who have formally signed on to support his efforts to revitalize and restore strategic neighborhoods.
