  • THE MISSION

    The Yetunde Price Resource Center (YPRC) honors the life and legacy of its namesake by supporting individuals, families, and children in Southern Los Angeles affected by trauma. Committed to helping others heal, YPRC collaborates with partner organizations to offer trauma-informed programs that promote community-wide healing and resiliency. YPRC’s approach is defined by three core pillars of action:

    1. Community-based systems navigation: Working to help those suffering from trauma heal by guiding them to free or discounted serves available throughout Southern Los Angeles. Each case is given dedicated, compassionate attention.

    2. Community Education: Partnering with schools, housing systems, police departments, health and mental health providers, social services, the justice system, civic organizations, government organizations, academia, and community leaders to provide community programs in resiliency, social problem solving, conflict resolution, preventing violence, and self-care.

    3. Expressive arts therapy: Working with victims and at-risk individuals to prevent and recover from violence through poetry, creative writing, music therapy, dance and movement therapy, and dramatic arts.

    Who is Yetunde Price? Yetunde Price was a beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Yetunde’s family established the Yetunde Price Resource Center to honor and continue her legacy of taking care of others.

    James Anderson Foundation

    When veteran NFL linebacker James Anderson began to explore philanthropic work, he explains, “I always wanted to do more than just write a check. I wanted to do good in the community. I knew Driving Force Group would connect me with the resources and education I needed to play an active role.” Over the last several years, Anderson has done just that, enabling a literacy program in partnership with Scholastic that provided over 12,000 books to students across two states, funding teachers’ classroom wish lists in his hometown of Chesapeake, VA, and supporting the work of Huddle Up. Today, Anderson sits on the Driving Force Group board, where his outreach efforts help inspire a new generation of informed, engaged, and dedicated philanthropists.
