About US
DKS Faith Outreach Foundation – Divine Knowledge Services is a faith-based nonprofit social service provider.

We were created by veterans to help veterans, others, and our inner-city youth to become more empowered, self-sufficient, and stable through life-skill training. Our At-Risk Youth Preventive Program is designed to educate and support individuals while working to eliminate poverty, violence, and abuse.

DKS Faith Outreach was created to help people fix root causes in their life holding them back.  As part of our Weed, Seed, and Feed Program, we will provide free and low-cost training to leaders in inner-city communities that focus on building life-skills and purpose mentors (personal self-enrichment, awareness, and empowerment). Our goal is to help bring communities, churches, and businesses, together to meet the need of social issues and struggles in creating the new leaders and mentors for tomorrow.

We are compelled to find solutions to improve our society. DKS is committed to making a difference to improve the quality of life by offering services, programs, and resources of hope.

 no later than the end of month May 2018.   Thank you!
Forward Pressed a veteran-owned organization about personal growth, hope, and self-love.  We provide social services to help people take back control of their lives and to remove obstacles that block their destination. In the future, we hope to provide paid workshops and additional services to further meet the needs of our clients.

There are times you need to get out of the way, trust your instincts and trust God.  Don't let detours negate your required action as you keep moving forward! Take back your power by first forgiving yourself, letting go, removing self-imposed limits and eliminating negative self-talk!

Established February 2016, Forward Pressed has collaborated with DKS Faith Outreach to empower people to live beyond their limits and inspire service. The two entities will work together yet remain separate. Our outreach is designed to educate and inspire others to succeed in living a life of their dreams; helping people to find their way in their life, community, and the world. 

We are faith-based veterans helping veterans and inner-city youth to become more empowered, self-sufficient, and stable through free life-skill training.

We want to inspire people to see their own greatness, by creating value, self-worth and promote healing in their lives, by giving people the tools to empower themselves. We help people:
• Recognize their passion and purpose in life
• Be sufficient and not dependent,
• Live a life with vision with clarity and integrity,
• Believe, love and accept themselves fully,
• Live an enlightened life and have better relationships,
• Rewrite their negative stories
• Be a positive light in the world

We believe that all people have a higher purpose in life to help one another. We believe the world will be a better place, if we all take steps to improve our quality of life, health, mindset and our relationships as a whole (whether it’s personal or business).

Everyone that ask for help does not necessarily want it; some have other motives. People change when they are motivated to take a real assessment of themselves and is mentally compelled to act.
