WILLIE L. POTTS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Bounce Back, Inc. staff and board of directors has launched an innovative concept to provide assistance to homeless, troubled youth, recovering drug addicts and those whom are experiencing employment, educational and domestic challenges.
We are a certified nonprofit corporation duly organized as a non-profit ministry October 24, 2007 under the State of South Carolina for religious,educational, social and charitable or eleemosynary purpose.
Our concept at Bounce Back, Inc. is to serve the community as a clearinghouse establishment providing advisers, referral consultants, motivational seminars, workshops, information and assistance to support our patrons. This model outreach program serves those needing basic, simplified help to ‘bounce back’ into mainstream society.
Our goals also include providing transitional housing options for those needing affordable housing as they reestablish themselves as responsible and productive members of society. As a related entity, WJNI-FM Gospel 106.3 FM allowed an opportunity to host a call-in talk show Bounce Back launched June 4, 2007 as a weekend 30 minute broadcast. A year later, June 23, 2008, The Bounce Back TalkShow, expanded its format and aired weekdays, WZJY-AM 1480 TalkRadio, 5p.m. – 7p.m, and January 10, 2009, started broadcasting an hour show on WZJY-AM 1480, TalkRadio, SATURDAYS, 11AM-12PM.
Our aspiration is expanding this to simulcast with other syndicated broadcast networks to more expose the efforts of Bounce Back, Inc. We currently look forward to resuming broadcast and webcast at blogtalkradio.com and other radio/television satellite providers.The ministry show is hosted by Bounce Back Inc. founder, Pastor Alfrieda Deas-Potts whom is a veteran broadcaster /journalist and graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Journalism and Liberty University School of Divinity Masters Program in Christian and Pastoral Ministries. Guests are from the religious, professional and service community as well as testimonials of successes in ‘bouncing back’. Community participation is encouraged through e-mails, letters and phone-in topics. The broadcast efforts and ambition is to increase the awareness of issues effecting our community.
Creation of "The Bounce Back Community Choir & Dance Troupe" is one of our most passionate ventures. It is to be made up of predominantly youth to spark creativity and uplifting momentum to the 'bounce back' concept. This serves as a dual vehicle to assist in the mentoring project for troubled youth giving them an outlet to embrace their talents. With the addition of our fellowship hall, open daily, a safe haven is available for recreation and performances.
We host four annual events to showcase our youth and other supporting agencies. They are: The Bounce Back Family Day Festival, held each summer & The Bounce Back Christmas Festival, held in December We also host a Youth Summit Workshop in April, Women's Fruits of the Spirit Day Retreat, and are available to host seminars and workshops by request. Pastor Deas-Potts is also available for appearances, book signings and motivational speaking.
The success of Bounce Back, Inc. is dependent upon your support and assistance in enhancing the growing nonprofit services offered through our network of agencies.
