HUMBLE BEGINNINGS 

Our Generation Cares (OGC) started grassroots work with first generation entrepreneurs in early 2020 in the city Long Beach - we had no idea how far or gratifying our intentions would be!  We began by volunteering our professional services to restaurateurs who were in the brink of bankruptcy due to COVID-19 business mandated restrictions. Through community outreach and innovation, we were able to raise a total of $100K+ in a short time and were fortunate to be on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2021 to share our accomplishment. In a matter of weeks to months we've fully renovated and grown from the walls and parking lot of our restaurant/venue, to our new temple of passion - Grace on 3rd Community Center in Long Beach, CA.

OGC Vision

We intend to execute that by impacting small business community needs, starting with improving neighborhood character through mentorship and unique hands-on job training programs with artistic, energetic entrepreneurs eager to engage in community needs. Equally important is educating our friends and neighbors, while promoting equality and financial growth throughout all cultures, ages and lifestyles in the communities we serve.
