BENEFITING: MICIAH DELESTON FOUNDATION FOR FAMILIES INC
Miciah Deleston was a vibrant, intelligent young lady who was murdered at 11 by her half-brother. In her honor, Melba Furlow and Miciah's father, former Dallas Cowboy running back, Dominique Ross, founded Miciah Deleston Foundation for Families, Inc. to provide solid foundations to aid in rebuilding families.
Our mission is to motivate and inspire today’s youth with premier beliefs of character, sportsmanship, leadership, public servitude, academic excellence and entrepreneurship. The organization has carefully developed a comprehensive group of programs designed to provide services and programs to foster self-sufficiency in low-income families, promote healthier lifestyles, facilitate athletic development, and promote family violence prevention to at-risk youth and their families. It is our belief that these programs and services will enable participants to surpass negative outcomes that would minimize poverty, increase assets, and generate youth prosperity.
