S.A.R.A.H.’S FOUNDATION INC.
Founder: Brianna Mims
We create spaces for people to explore themselves. We believe that the commitment to the process of understanding ourselves is the catalyst for authentic power and individual sovereignty.
Through workshops, classes, and events we use movement, meditation, conversation, and art as a tool for self-exploration.
The goal of this program is personal development and mindfulness. We want people to explore their internal state and past experiences apropos their current state of thoughts, perceptions, and physical actions.

USC Dornsife - POSC 395 Research Project
In the POSC 395 California Policy Research Internship, students work collaboratively with community partners to develop policy solutions to real world challenges.
Spring 2018, in partnership with the Office of Los Angeles Councilmember Paul Krekorian, Unruh Institute research interns evaluated the current homelessness crisis in Los Angeles County. They took an in-depth look at current programs and services provided and proposed policy recommendations. They also looked at effective programs in Northern California, the United States, and internationally and compared them to the current L.A. programs.
