The EOBA/ SmartMoves Program is a non-profit, community-based organization that has been providing education, enrichment, and health programs for children and youth since 1987. Built on the foundation that youth need a caring environment to become vibrant adults, the EOBA focuses on providing programs that are engaging and fun for youth ages 5-20.
"The last precarious step into a criminal's world — the young person may come from poverty without a two-parent home, or even a single-parent home, while tempted by drugs in the neighborhood, where gang activity is prevalent. It's difficult for these youths to resist such dead-end temptations, unless someone convinces them of a better, safer alternative." Zachary Stauffer
