A Holiday Thank You From The Truth Teller Inc.


As the holidays arrive it seems appropriate to both reflect on 2021 and look to the future. This year brought its own set of new and unexpected challenges and obstacles to overcome, but as always, I am pleased and encouraged by God's steady hand of favor on The Truth Teller mission and the Eastlake Male Youth Initiative ministry:

  • Welcomed 50 students to our Eastlake Male Youth Initiative youth leadership program.

  • Maintained our student enrollment by hosting virtual leadership sessions.

  • Provided service to the most vulnerable in our communities.

  • Created moments that mattered with cultural excursions to Montgomery and Tuskegee, Alabama.

  • Established new partnerships with the DeKalb Juvenile Justice Council and the East Lake Foundation.

  • Raised over $50,000 in public and private donations.

The perseverance, commitment and resilience of our students, parents, staff, and supporters has never been more on display as we continue to forge ahead with pride and the promise of an even greater year in 2022!


Until then, we wish you many memorable gatherings together as well as safe and happy holidays.


Have a Merry and Blessed Christmas,

Reverend Kenneth G. Torrence
