An NYPD Traffic Enforcement Agent, Tricia Joseph serves the public in ensuring the safety of pedestrians as they travel to and fro throughout any given day. This is the same care and attention Tricia devotes to our organization.

volunteering

We have many people volunteer for us each year and make the difference in the lives of youth and families. Find out how to become our partner.

Amarimba spearheads social development programs, recreational events, and educational workshops. After hosting a holiday party to make a valuable contribution to families of local homeless shelters in 2015, she was inspired to establish T.A.L.L.O.M.


A native of Trinidad, Amarimba migrated to the US in search of a better life for her family. A former health care finance administrator, she currently devotes her time, energy and passions to charitable works. A childhood survivor of poverty, low self-esteem and depression brought on by child molestation, Amarimba understands first-hand the need to protect the rights and well-being of children.


A fierce advocate for disadvantaged youth, her resourcefulness in finding innovative solutions to support inner-city youth is extraordinary. Amarimba is experiencing her life's purpose and takes great pleasure in contributing to her community. When she's not wielding her superpowers of love and compassion, Amarimba enjoys traveling, cooking, church fellowship, and reading. She is also fond of assisting her three beautiful daughters with Girl Scout activities.
