Who We Are

On December 13, 2012 my 19 year old son was shot and killed while leaving work. Joshua Proutey was an outgoing, adventurous young man with a heart for children. Joshua worked at The Community Arts Theater of The Thalian Association in Wilmington, NC.
Meet Josh.

Our desire is to help continue the journey for other children as Joshua’s journey was cut short. The goal is to reach children of Wilmington with interest in Performing Arts and other enrichment programs whose families may not otherwise be able to afford. We are dedicated to providing an environment that respects diversity, ideas, and hard work.

We are a group of real people who simply believe that good can come from the tragic loss of Joshua Proutey.

We will aggressively seek out at-risk-children in need of a safety net by offering activities otherwise not affordable to them, their family.

We will pursue excellence in everything we do.  We will always provide the children the best we are able.

We will never lose sight of the significance of “ONE.” One more child reached.  One more life changed.  One more dream realized.   One is always greater than none.

We will give generously back to those we partner with in our community

We will not be detered by personal agendas as we reach the children of this city. Our only focus is on those we are trying to reach rather than those we are trying to impress.
