Father André Polièvre’s unyielding compassion brought the Str8Up initiative to action almost twenty years ago. This organization is comprised of ex-gang members and others who seek to abandon criminal activity and adopt healthy lifestyles. Through the healing process, many individuals have been able to accomplish their goals and inspire others to follow in their path.  Amiskusees has demonstrated our support through our contributions to Str8Up’s two published books. Congratulations - we look forward to more of these constructive efforts in the future.

But how do we move forward together? How do we stand by Str8Up as a Charitable Foundation and uphold the values represented by them? In our efforts, Amiskusees will be contributing a total of $75,000.00 over the next three years to this worthwhile organization. Thank you and Merry Christmas to Father Andre and the Str8Up Family.
