Our Purpose for the Charity Fashion Show
Due to the recent violence that plague our community The Miss Black Illinois USA Organization wanted to have a strong voice in the community therefore, we selected an organization founded by Diane Latiker to assist with their efforts.
Diane believes that she could make a difference in the community, and in the many youth that she came in contact with daily. She became encouraged and opened up her home to get these young people off the streets and involved in programs that would benefit them for the rest of their lives. KOB started out with ten neighborhood kids, and now has impacted thousands of lives. "Some say our youth is a lost generation, I don't believe that to be true." Diane Latiker, Founder and President of Kids Off The Block organization thinks differently, "I have heard the voices and they speak of hope and love. Through forms of compassion, love, and guidance this generation can be led to discovering a spectrum of opportunities and become positive leaders in our communities."
