In the summer of 2021, Believing In Forever Inc facilitated its Community On The Corners¬†initiative where Devine Carama and JK-47 engaged in community pop-performances in underserved neighborhoods in Lexington. During these performances, volunteers from several local organizations distributed free food, bottled water, baby products, household cleaning items and children’s books, provided free health screens, registered people to vote, and more.

The Lexington Black Prosperity Initiative at Blue Grass Community Foundation awarded a grant to Believing In Forever that provided more than 100 “Prosperity Backpacks” to children living in the East End, West End, and Woodhill area at the Community On The Corners events. The backpacks contained STEM projects, a microscope and a lab coat.
