Chelonia is a Christian based organization with the mission of guiding
and protecting the youth of our communities through education and training then helping to guide them through their adult
lives. Our motto is "Knowledge is Power".

that if something happens to you then oh well, get a loan or something. What Chelonia is about is reinstilling value,
virtue, and harmony back into our world.
We do this through various projects that will help those who have a need
to become self sufficient.
Some programs we are proposing:
- Housing for At Risk Youth and Families
- A Community Internet Cafe
- Financial Planning Seminars
- Limited Financial Assistance
- A Community Garden
