Program Description

The Distinctive Form is a foundation that assistances first generational and underrepresented children in mentoring, leadership skills and the guidance of financial and scholarship funds. This foundation was originated from the dreams for my own children attending college debt free. Both girls are currently attending notable universities and will graduate unlike myself, debt free.

Success Stories

This foundation has mentored and guided young individuals for a while however, there are several notable examples which include my daughter Kristin Goss that guided and inspired the essay writings in which these two individuals ultimately became a recipient of The Gates Millennium Scholarship in 2011 and 2012. One of the young ladies is attending Howard University in Washington D.C, living in a junior suite that is fully paid by this foundation. And the other young lady is studying at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia and both are doing very well academically.

Best Practices Library

The Distinctive form Foundation is a professional and attentive service that would bring value to any underrepresented youth in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia area. This foundation gives personal service to each and every family and clients that it interacts however, defers other services to several community groups. This is a foundation that works for the community and that passion flows throughout the company.
