Our History ~ Our Future

My Daughter’s Keeper of Tampa Bay, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization (501 (c) 3) based in St. Petersburg, Florida in the Tampa Bay Metro area – USA. The foundation was launched in 2007 with the mission to address the developmental needs and life challenges of young girls, and teens aged 10 to 18, during the adolescent and developing years. The organization was created to be a catalyst of “Bridging the Gap and Strengthening the Bond” among young girls, women and their caregivers, during the most critical stages of life, and to prepare them mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, and culturally for their journey into adulthood. Services and resources are provided to meet the individualized needs of Young Adults ages 18 and older.

Realizing that education and basic life skills is the key to unlocking the door out of poverty, hardship and failure. Our organization expanded its mission in 2019 under the DBA name “Envision Me Youth Academy” which assists at-risk and emerging youth in overcoming the educational and social barriers that continue to overshadow their progress to accomplishing and achieving the skills, and goals to ensure a future of success. Our purpose is to provide a more tailored program that meets the culturally related services, and support needed among youth in our distressed communities.

 As a charitable organization, we realize that community partnerships are what builds a much stronger community when working together for one common goal, and that is to make life better and brighter for our future generations. To ensure that all youth have the experience of forming positive and healthy relationships, gaining the social and personal development skills necessary to excel as productive individuals in their community and, perhaps most importantly, society at large. We are excited to soon offer personal development and youth coaching services to youth ages 13 & Up.
