Who We Are
Our Mission is to empower and ensure that individuals in our communities
identify their purpose, envision, cultivate and implement their plan of success in life.
144th & Vine; LLC is a Non Profit consulting agency that specializes in personal, professional and organizational development. We are a community focused agency that offers consulting with a philanthropic twist. We help organizations put people first and we help people prioritize their own personal development. We believe through education and empowerment, resilient people leading effective organizations will build robust communities. In these most trying times, when the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, our communities are lacking the fundamental resources to compete with our global economy. In November 2012, Our Founder Tyneisha K. Gibbs, sought to provide guidance and direction to all who were denied equal access to everyday opportunities. Founded on biblical principals, 144th & Vine; LLC was conceived from the scripture Psalm 144:12 “Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.” (NIV) Since it’s inception, we have provided services to schools, non profit organizations and individuals in NJ, NY, MD, NC, NV and GA.
