Our Mission

Our mission is to directly influence the lives of teens and young adults by teaching essential life skills and useful social skills. We recognize the great potential of our youth and we vow to help them build healthy lifestyles, positive self-esteem and thriving communities.

Our Approach

The Happy Confident Future Foundation was built on pure love and passion for people.  We are a non-profit 501.c.3 mentoring organization and our mission is to extend a helping hand to ANYONE in need.  Regardless of our differences, the one thing we all have in common is the desire for human compassion.  The HCFF not only operates in the spirit of love and compassion but the true desire to help others succeed.

Our Story

On April 29, 2013 founder, Ra'Sheia Nicole Parker developed Girls Destined For Greater Mentoring group.  The mission was to guide teenaged girls, age 12-17 through mentorship while focusing on goal building, leadership, self-esteem, and dreams.

As the program began to flourish, it became more apparent that not only were teen girls in need but their families were in need as well.  With home life and family structure being a major factor to the success of our teen girls, Parker decided to address the deeper issue.  The Happy Confident Future Foundation was born.

The HCFF currently serves in the city of Detroit with a focus on the North and Northwest areas.  The HCFF serves the community with our programs, Girls Destined For Greater Mentoring Group and Success:YES!, we offer mentoring for children and adults.  We've serviced numerous Detroit families and organizations and we are looking to make an even greater impact for years to come.
