Program Goals

Our organization continues to build strong foundations in California with qualified connections in New York, Illinois, and Indiana. However, Grown.Folks.Business, Inc. serves ALL communities. Our programs and services are for everyone; everywhere!

We serve individual(s) who may be affected by Behavioral, Mental, and Developmental illnesses; with special attention to prisons, shelters, troubled schools, senior/youth facilities, and anywhere else we are needed. We provide many opportunities to learn more about self-awareness; striving to assist and support individuals are displaced and overlooked.

Grown.Folks.Business, Inc. educates the public with “Person-Centered Therapy” and how it strengthens self-awareness by providing courtesy services to individuals (one on one), and large groups for the sake of addressing immediate BMD Health needs. Any requested services thereafter, may come through sponsorships and/or available funds derived from fundraising. Workshops, community events, exhibits, and other events support these endeavors.

Our goal is to provide ongoing community programs and services:

   1. Address That! Handling You. (Curriculum in progress)

   2. BMD Health And The Arts: Stimulant Project(s)

   3. “Serve Another Somewhere” Campaign

We provide positive, enlightening, and uplifting activities; always welcoming the public. These services exist to further our mission and have always supported our fundraising efforts. Music and Visual Arts are supportive tools for our educational awareness programs; serving as stimulants to minimize disharmony and stigmas that create barriers.

Address That! Handling You

This program introduces Person-Centered discussions to help others realize the need for continued self assessment.

The purpose of this program is to minimize personal stigmas of Behavioral, Mental, and Developmental illnesses by igniting open discussions of overlooked personal problems within ourselves which can lead to self-inflicted BMD Health illnesses.

Person-Centered Therapy methods are based on a nondirective, empathetic, and compassionate approach proven to empower individuals to “recognize and utilize their own inner capacity and desire for change” through “self-actualization”.

According to the Person-Centered Therapy model, scientific research proves that the need to enhance our lives and the lives of others is naturally at the core of every human being. This core need highly drives us and effects our thoughts, decisions, behaviors, and can be identified through dedicated self-actualization.

BMD Health and The Arts: Stimulant Project

Grown.Folks.Business, Inc. strongly believes that anyone can benefit from BMD Heath Awareness services when they are merged with the therapeutic effects of music and visual arts. This is how we implement innovative and artistic therapeutic methods into our services. At various scheduled periods, we utilize our artistic services to stimulate community participation and cooperation. Community and group inclusion artistic projects also serve as stimulants.

   a. BMD Health and The Arts Program and Exhibits

   b. “Arts as A Stimulant” Project(s)

   c. “Paint by Numbers”: Environment Beautification Mural(s)

   d. Instrumental Music, Live Performances, Poetry/Spoken Word Events

According to multiple health databases, The Arts serve as an effective means to counterattack the shortcomings of traditional behavioral, mental, and developmental therapy and treatment within the health sector. Arts and entertainment is currently proven to have effective and positive results within the health industry. In addition, engaging in artistic activities, as an observer or creator, enhances moods, emotions, psychological states and relieves stress.

“Grown Folks Business” artistic services are used in a variety of ways to heal, increase understanding of oneself and others, develop capacities for self-reflection, reduce symptoms, and alter behaviors and thinking patterns with positive outcomes.

“Serve Another Somewhere” Campaign

All humans, no matter the illness or status, should be treated as we seek for ourselves and those we love to be treated. Grown.Folks.Business, Inc. is built on commitment to “self and social enhancement”. We support ethical and positive therapeutic actions to self and others, which improves environments.

Our  “Serve Another. Somewhere.” campaign is to sow positive and supportive contributions into the lives of others; especially the lives of those who are directly effected by BMD Health illnesses.  As we expand this philanthropic movement, we discover community needs and create opportunities to team up with dedicated people who pledge to help others. We’re hands-on; always visible and active within our communities; providing direct communication, education, and support on behalf of those individuals who may be avoided, overlooked, and stigmatized.  This campaign is consistent and effective; helping humanity remember that BMD Health effects everyone.

The 3 main goals are:

   a. To manifest awareness of self value, self-worth, self-respect, and self-confidence

   b. To restore diminished or lost faith in humanity

   c. To restore empathy and compassion one to another

We will not, in any way, attempt to influence anyone directly from our own perspective, but we do encourage everyone to refer to our organization for BMD program and service needs.

ALL programs and services are provided through diligent fundraising efforts.
