About The Heal the Hood (HTH) Foundation of Memphis
HTH is a nonprofit organization that provides positive outlets for youth and young adults through singing, dancing, art, acting, motivational speaking, screenwriting, and modeling. We believe that if we can positively influence youth to think before they make decisions and stay away from gangs, drugs, alcohol, weapons, and other mass destruction, we can help them and others become the dynamic individuals they were created to be. HTH has plans to open a multi-million dollar Hero Empowerment Center to give youth a safe place to engage in artistic therapy that cultivates and equips youth and families to use their gifts and talents to positively shape the community around them.
