Experience the magic of Empowered Youth

Imagine a world where children’s role models are drug addicts and criminals. Where attending funerals of their friends seems as commonplace as hanging out at the mall and taking out the trash might result in being shot to death. Where electricity and functional plumbing aren’t guaranteed.
Is this some war-torn country or maybe a struggling third–world nation? No. Such is the life of poverty-stricken inner city AMERICA.
By stark contrast, Colleen Adams hailed from the racially segregated south in the 1940’s and climbed her way to the elite end of the social scale. But after accomplishing hollow success as a fashion and publishing marketing executive, Colleen heeded her life’s calling to tackle the hopelessness and despair of disenfranchised inner-city young men. But could one person provide the means for youth from the most crime-ridden and poverty-stricken neighborhoods to actually achieve the American Dream?
With incredible insight and determination, Colleen carved an innovative path of hope through Empowered Youth USA, but was ultimately forced to choose between the young men she had come to love and the financial security of her lucrative career. Would she turn her back on the boys she had grown to love?
Hope in the Hood is the inspiring true story of one woman’s improbable dream to carve a perpetual path to a brighter future for struggling inner city young men. Author Shirley Alarie conveys the raw and emotional struggles and successes through the voices of the young men, and the magic as seen through their mentors and judicial system experts.
Hope in the Hood is a beautiful reminder that one drop, even in the ocean, creates an expanding ripple.
Hope in the Hood is the third installment of Shirley Alarie’s Lemons to Lemonade series of inspirational nonfiction novels.

Shawn Jayroe’s passion for horses and desire to help the underdog was instilled during her charmed childhood. Later, when the shy yet determined self-made businesswoman witnessed mistreatment of the beautiful majestic equines, a deep need to protect those without a voice begged her to action. Shawn rallied troops from the community to bring her vision to life, and with dedicated volunteers and financial donations, a miraculous life-saving refuge was gradually pieced together, forming RVR Horse Rescue.
But one result Shawn hadn’t anticipated was the magical effect the horrifically abused animals would imprint on their caregivers, blurring the lines of who was saving whom. Author Shirley Alarie delivers the riveting saga of Shawn Jayroe and her army of Horse Angels who are tackling the unspoken issue of equine neglect and abuse one desperate animal at a time. A Healing Haven is an inspiring true story and a beautiful reminder that it is in giving that we receive life’s greatest blessings.
