Networking & Advocacy for ESOL Population
Our international population makes up such an integral part of the Rochester community. From Yemen, to Nepal, to the Federal Republic of Somalia….Rochester has been blessed with diverse cultures from around the world. Education is one of the most important components of a refugee’s ability to acclimate to their new environment. We will act as advocates to ensure their continued success both in and out of the classroom. Additional goals will be to assist newly arrived refugees with navigating the logistical intricacies of finding and maintaining: Housing / Employment / Medical Benefits & Adequate Healthcare.
Leadership Home for Young Men
A vast majority of today’s young males are not afforded the same opportunities as their counterparts. Graduation rates are down, incarceration is on the rise and violence within the community is rampant. Our leadership home for young men (ages 16-21) will provide displaced (or unaccompanied) young men with a stable and nurturing environment in which to flourish. Some of the services that will be provided to these young leaders include: Self-Development & Leadership Skill Building / Group Therapy Community Service & Outreach Programs / Mentoring
Advocacy & Networking Connections.

Pearl’s Garden of Life
PEARL’s scholars have been selected to plant a community garden at the historic Hamm Memorial Site. The goals of this project are neighborhood beautification, community outreach and also to memorialize the prestigious community activists, James and Bessie Hamm, who were local heroes because of the strides that they both made to improve the community in which we live today. The students will engage in service-learning by planting and tending the garden, journaling about the process and in turn will strengthen the community and become actively contributing citizens through character building activities. Once the garden is in full-blown, a portion of the plants/flowers will be distributed to local nursing homes (Episcopal Senior Life, Unity Living Center & Monroe Community Hospital) to assist in enriching the lives of some of the residents.
PEARL Ministries Inc.is dedicated to providing ongoing support to the Greater Rochester area and beyond. Our mission is to equip children and adults alike with the necessary skills to succeed in various aspects of life. We accomplish this by focusing on educational, mental, and physical needs.
