I AM YOU, INC. BEGAN...
as a social movement in the year of 2015. The initial goal was to promote peace and to unify our community. In 2017, our Founder (Crystal DuPree) was inspired to convert I Am You into a non-profit organization, becoming I Am You, Inc. The organization was then revamped and our Transformational Development Program was developed, which is a major component within the organization - introducing our Co-Facilitator (Eboni Church). Both, DuPree and Church are devoted to self-improvement and share a passion for helping others to become the healthiest versions of themselves. Their mothers, who are childhood best friends but sisters by heart, were also a source of inspiration. Their examples of sisterhood and togetherness was so genuine, that it conveyed a feeling that they wanted to also share with the world. I Am You, Inc. was then birthed into an organization that is committed to fostering transformation and promoting unity. The words I Am You are so much more than a name or simple statement. I Am You is a prompt, a reminder, and encouragement to take a course of action - to transform ourselves in order to transform our world.
We aim to provide the tools, support, and positive alternatives needed in order to create an environment that is suitable for growth and healing and to ultimately amend the community.
