FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our Own is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to build and strengthen communities through consistent, life-changing experiences. We create access to resources for mental, physical, and emotional health to support the underserved. These tools empower people to reimagine themselves and impact their community. The initiatives we create such as Be Right Back, Keep It Run Hundred, Seed & Soil and SELF provides the access needed in underrepresented communities. Communities served includes, Los Angeles County, Ventura County, Compton, Watts, Long Beach, Inglewood and Altadena
Understanding the limited access to mental, physical, and social emotional resources increases stress and trauma, which drastically stifle the opportunity for growth in the community. We believe engagement and a relationship built through experiential learning and actionable tools empowers the community to make informed choices and reclaim their future.
