Our Story

In 2004, 21-year-old Shanta Barton-Stubbs saw a need to support youth in a neighborhood where violent crime, drug abuse, and homelessness are commonplace. That first summer, she started with 8 youth, $1500 of her personal savings, and a handful of used board games. Today, New Image Youth Center is a consistent presence in the lives of youth who often lack stability. Read more about how we are changing the lives of at-risk youth in Orlando.
