Founded in 2010 by siblings Candice, Ronnie, and John, the Staton Family Foundation, Inc. recognizes that poverty does not have to be a lifelong circumstance, and that opening the doors of opportunity will improve the quality of life for any individual who lives in poverty.
Our vision is to improve the quality of life for less fortunate citizens of North Carolina. Our goal is to open the doors of opportunity through education, employment, and housing, and to provide outreach and social services to the community. We especially wish to foster the creativity of children and youth by opening the doors to creative learning opportunities that have been inaccessible because of poverty. Our objective is to operate a variety of programs that will not only satisfy community need, but will also influence the growth and the development of lifelong skills that will prosper individuals and families for generations.
