Arlana R. Brown

(CeO,Founder,& Executive director)

Born with a big heart Arlana believes that everyone has a purpose in life. Her purpose is simple, she wants to help. While in nursing school Arlana wanted to open her arms a little more, and started a non-profit to help high school kids attend Prom. After realizing the shortage in the city regarding resources for sexual and domestic assault, Arlana decided to do something.  Arlana started Project S.A.V.E with the hopes that people would no longer have to wait for treatment, but every need would be met. Her dream has been met with tremendous love and help and you can be apart of that too!
