THE STREETS DON'T LOVE YOU BACK MOVEMENT
Rob and Lucinda started The Streets Don’t Love You Back Movement in 2009 and became a 501-c non-profit in February 2015.
The foundation of our movement comes from the book, The Streets Don’t Love You Back. The memoirs of Rob Boyd's life growing up in the streets of Detroit.
Our movement is striving to educate about the dangers of gangs, drugs, violence and abuse and that there are many alternatives to that life. Our focus is education and teaching the lifeskills needed to make changes in your life.
Our six-week Lifeskills Intervention Program includes education and discussions on Substance Abuse Dependency, Making Decisions, Anger Management, Attitude, Behaviors, Problem Solving, Self-Improvement, Setting Goals, Identifying Strengths and Skills.
We are currently teaching the classes in Arizona at the Abels Halfway House's, City of Maricopa Courthouse, Phillips Memorial CME Church Hall in Phoenix, Gila River Boys and Girls Club, Soon to begin in Laveen School System and officially in the Arizona Department of Corrections starting in January 2017. The program is already sent into many prisons nationwide and is available for classes in other states as self-study. We believe that with the right tools you can make positive changes in your life.
In November we met at the Arizona State Senate with Senator Steve Smith, Director Charles Ryan of ADOC, Senator Catherine Miranda, Art Harding Legislative Liaison and City of Maricopa, Mayor Christian Price. We had the honor to introduce, The Streets Don't Love You Back Lifeskills Intervention Program.
