Our Mission

It is our mission and dream to connect as many like-minded individuals together under one common goal of experiencing a “greater than moment”. A moment where you realize that your experiences and personal transformation affects others positively. Forgiving yourself of past transgressions and allowing oneself to heal by helping others and the world as a whole.

Our Vision

Our plan is to foster hope through creative solutions to a struggling workforce dealing with affordable housing and the fear of failure with so much on the line. Not to mention those dealing with fear of recidivism to homelessness, jails or institutions and in sometimes death. We have seen linear methods fall short and feel with proper guidance we could help those in need develop skills and learn valuable life lessons that can translate into a more involved workforce that works together.

We have no restrictions on race, creed or standardized intelligence, only desire and dedication and also the potential bond of the apprentice and mentor. Volunteers make this even more of a reality by getting community involved.


Depression / Hopelessness / Fear / Lethargy / Apathy


Desire / Dreams / Fellowship / Hope / Inspiration


Do what you love and love what you do will reign supreme. From personal experience, we have found that maintaining motivation to accomplish many great things can be a harrowing experience and by setting smaller attainable goals and feeling those smaller wins, one can fuel inspiration and keep the excitement alive.

South Side Block Party

South Side Block Party

Saturday, March 24th 10am – 6pm

Celebrating the 500-600 blocks of Caroline & Sophia Streets

Thanks for taking the time to speak to us about an event close to our hearts. Being new business owners in the “south side” of the Commercial District of Downtown Fredericksburg, we’re often left thinking, “Hey what about us?”

View & Share FB Event

A block party would be a great way for business owners to rally together. Think of it as a sidewalk sale but one where we as a community invest in a common goal.

Advertising and social media efforts will be combined. As a partner, your business will receive:

  • A mention on the event website (insert custom domain) to include your logo, website and social media links
  • A mention on the event’s Facebook and visitfred.com event page
  • Your logo on large colorful posters found around downtown
  • Inclusion in our fun scavenger hunt – the “South Side Hunt,” that will guide shoppers around our block party and into our establishments.
    • Please email a non-branded photo entry of a product in your store to be included as a clue on our game board
    • Have an item to donate to our game raffle? Please email a detailed description and prize value. Prizes will need to be received at Katora Coffee a week prior to the event.
    • Able to chip in or assist with poster or game board printing? Please send an email with details of your donation.
