Carlos was born into a low-income community and faced many obstacles of an at-risk youth, including parents consumed by their own challenges, unavailable, and unaware of what they could do to lift him and his siblings out of the darkness. The richness of the story comes through the way people in his community-engaged to support him, often pointing him in the right direction and providing needed structure, expecting him to be accountable and celebrating his accomplishments. Carlos had people who believed in him and showed their love in ways that mattered. The attention was the healing medicine that cured him of his past.

“I want anyone reading ‘I Once Was’ to understand you are not defined by your circumstances. You do not have to be a product of your environment. You can be successful; there is hope if you never quit trying to better your life.”

Since Carlos was an at-risk youth, he is sensitive to the underlying issues affecting decision making and the ability to see their self-worth. He understands how discipline, consistency, and applying oneself can overcome obstacles that can lead to unimaginable success. He applies what he has learned to shape the lives of at-risk youth, so children are not or written off because of the community they were born into.

The transformational life experiences Carlos faced highlighted core beliefs that guided him to develop the key principles of the work he does today. Fifth Ward Saints is a unique program Carlos created to combine social, emotional, and athletic developmental experiences, to open alternative possibilities for underprivileged youth. The curriculum is designed to help level the playing field for young adults and their families. By using a holistic approach, encompasses all economic and social backgrounds to transform the lives of at-risk youth.
