About US

Small Steps, Big Difference!

Craving For A Change Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was formed in 2019 by Kenshara Cravens. As a first-generation college student, Kenshara struggled to find necessary resources to complete college applications, FAFSA requests and more. Birthed from that experience, Kenshara would later form the Craving For A Change Foundation.

The Craving For A Change Foundation offers transitional assistance to adolescent youth and young adults. Assistance includes but is not limited to social emotional learning, life skills training, resume building, career exploration, college readiness, tuition and scholarship assistance. 

The Craving For A Change Foundation seeks to inspire the future generations of our community with essential programs, resources and scholarship funding necessary for success.
