  • Mission:
  • The C.H.A.M.P. Community Project provides self-development and self-empowerment educational programs to improve on the emotional and mental well-being of individuals (adults and teens) who are living in single parent environments.

  • Overview:
  • The C.H.A.M.P. Community Project was created to educate and empower at risk teens and adults living in and growing up with the challenges of the single parent environment. Through the use of practical tools those most at-risk within the single parent household demographic can employ to cultivate exceptional Character, true Happiness, healthy Attitudes, productive Mentalities, and a real sense of Purpose for themselves, their families, and their communities.

  • History:
  • Founded by Traci S. Campbell, a product of the single parent household environment herself says:
    "Negative traits acquired from our parents or negative mentalities that are the result of abusive relationships and associations are what a vast majority of teenagers and adults deal with today. A lack of knowledge on how to deal with issues like bullying, abuse, and low self-esteem manifests into a cycle of more abuse, more depression, more broken relationships, and more negative traits being passed on to future generations. It's time to stop the cycle!"

    The C.H.A.M.P. Community Project (Character, Happiness, Attitude, Mentality, and Purpose) was developed not just from Traci's childhood but through a book and workbook she authored in the mid 2000's. She developed the concept of a charitable organization around the principals and benefits of empowering at-risk kids and adults from the single parent environment and in 2012 was granted the IRS 501 (c) (3) charitable designation. Since, the signature program, the C.H.A.M.P. Within, a 5 week program has been granted to over 500 kids in areas of Atlanta, Chicago, and internationally in Nairobi, Kenya. Through measurable outcomes the C.H.A.M.P. Community Project is and continues to make a difference in the lives of those challenged by the non-traditional household environments. Since, the C.H.A.M.P. Community Project is recognized nationally in the US as a signature outreach program of the National Association of Park Foundations.
