A Word From Our Founder

“Having been raised by a single mother and because my life was profoundly changed through the kindness of others, I left a long career in investments to pursue my dream of helping change the lives of other children from single-parent families. My hope is that Project One will create a cycle of change and giving that will better the lives of many for years to come.”
NEAL EMMONS, PROJECT ONE FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
