             “Spring is synonymous with rebirth,  rejuvenation, regrowth, resurrection and renewal.  ,With that in mind, the House Of Umoja, Inc. is bringing together our community’s healers, thinkers, visionaries, griots, entrepreneurs, activists and youths to exchange and share ideas and solutions that will transform our community into an economically, spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally vibrant oasis that protects its most vulnerable members – Our Children, the Next Generation Of Leaders, Husbands, Fathers, Wives, and Mothers -- and Our Elders, the  jewels of our community.  Solutions, much like wisdom, come from all places.  Each Saturday, beginning  on Saturday, 26 March 2022, the House Of Umoja, Inc. is bringing together souls in our community who have ideas and solutions that will bring about rebirth, rejuvenation, regrowth, resurrection, renewal, and peace in our neighborhoods.  Every idea is important.  Every voice must be heard and dialogue can bring about healing and peace,” remarked Queen Mother Falaka Fattah, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the House Of Umoja, Inc.
