Our Journey: About The Founders And Why They Found This Organization
OUR JOURNEY: THE FOUNDERS
Ryan Wagstaff- President
Porsha Starks-Vice President
Gwyn McClellan-Director of Operations
These four people, Melvin McClellan, Ryan Wagstaff, Porsha Starks, and Gwyndolyn McClellan, had a dream that one day a Child Abuse Museum and Family Convention Center would be built in the United States of America. They set on a course to make that dream come true. As with any group, there is one person who has the visionary direction that the organization should steer its course on; who stays in the background working intently; who motivates and encourages others to move forward when obstacles stand in your way and who is constantly coming up with creative and innovative ideas to make your dream become reality. That person was Melvin McClellan. He chose to stay in the background as a silent founder to give the rest of us the opportunity to establish ourselves as leaders. But now that Melvin passed away on December 7, 2019, all of us felt that it was time that Melvin receive credit that was due to him while living but he chose to shy away from.
We will miss Melvin but his words are burnt in our hearts: "Don't let anyone take this from you." We will heed Melvin's words and we know that his spirit will continue to guide and be with us as we fulfill one of our missions in life to build a child abuse museum and family convention center in the United States.
Our Journey: For Building and Operating a Child Abuse Museum And Family Convention Center in the United States includes;
1. Working to make a difference in the lives (and those who have died) of child abused victims- animals and people, dysfunctional families, troubled youth and troubled animals.
2. Making people more aware, concerned, and committed to helping in the plight that the above-mentioned groups face.
Our Motto: You'll Cherish Love; We'll Cherish Love. TOGETHER, We'll Hear And Cherish Their Cries. We hope you will journey with us as we hear and respond to the cries of child abused victims, dysfunctional families, troubled youth and troubled animals.
Turning to our beloved Melvin's words of wisdom: "When one journey's in life alone, the way can be very difficult; but when one journeys with others, the path becomes so much easier."
