Love saving lives. T.H.U.G.S. Inc. Is the acronym for Truth Healing and Uniting Greater Souls Incorporated. Truth is what Jesus said would set us free. Healing is restoring or nursing back to health. Uniting is coming together and bonding for the good of the purpose in which you serve. Greater is vast or enormous and stands for the amount of impact we will make on the world. Soul(s) is the essence or character of every human being and represents the heart.

T.H.U.G.S., Inc. Is a mentoring mediation and bullying and violence prevention program called “The Resurrection”. Our mentors and clients are purposely matched according to want the clients see as his or her horizon. The mentor will be the mirror that the client looks in and communicates with and has accomplished or is in the process of accomplishing the goal that the client has their eye on. This makes it a positive and effective experience for both the client and the mentor. Mentors and clients will make use of modern technology to make it happen including Skype, texting, calling or emails. . . by any means necessary. We are in the process of building a great pool of college students, professionals and entrepreneurs to serve as mentors for our clients.

Our mediators are “street level mediators”. Street level mediator means that we mediate between the public and those that serve them. This could be between teachers and administrators or between parents and teachers. It could also be between a welfare worker and his or her client. Street mediation also involves being in the cross walks before and after school and being in the parks where needed. We are there whenever we are notified whether it is between two 10 year olds, a teacher and a student or a blood and a crypt.

Bullying and Violence Prevention starts with our mediators (conflict resolution) and ends with our mentors. Mediators simply identify the problem and gives council and resolution to both sides and provides the help he or she needs after carefully gauging the circumstances of each case. The mentors are handpicked for the client and proper referrals are made according to client’s area of interest. He or she may have an interest in auto mechanic or becoming nurse and the mentors will start him or her on the right track to pursue that course of action. These systems have been set into place to begin the process of resurrecting humanity from a physical, mental and emotional grave and building a more civilized society.

T.H.U.G.S. Inc. was formally founded on December 21, 2010. However, they’ve have been operating informally since 1997. Philena V. Ruffin is the sole founder of this organization (by the Grace of God) and does not have a problem with sharing it with other willing participants. Our program primarily serves disadvantaged persons between the ages of 10 – 24. If it is children between the ages of 10 – 17 that we are serving then we also try to engage and serve their parent(s). Some of the programs offered are Black History and Self Awareness, Conflict Resolution and Critical Thinking Skills, Self Defense, and Communication Skills.
