We’ve probably all heard of the story of Jonas and the Whale. Like Jonas, our founder was reluctant to become an apostle. Alpha Fleurimond has already established himself as a community leader through his work in the nonprofit sector. In 2011, he was encouraged by his wife and community leaders to open his own nonprofit. After much prayer and consideration, he heeded his calling and opened Three Virtues Organization, Inc. in October 2012.
No longer a reluctant apostle, Three Virtues Organization, Inc began with a focus on families: those within Homestead and surrounding towns, such as immigrants, migrant workers, and low-income families. The organization prioritized what a family would need to prosper. Also, how individuals within those families could be helped at the different stages in their life. The unique perspective and needs of these families were at the center of program development and guided our mission.

The Three Virtues Organization is committed to help and improve minority families through self-empowerment, education, and advocacy.
Our programming has been developed based on our communities’ needs and to achieve the goals in our mission. In order to better service our clients, we provided services in Creole, English, and Spanish. Our programming includes an After school and Summer Camp, which allows us to start helping families beginning in early childhood and focusing on their educational needs. The Food Pantry was opened to help the most vulnerable in our community. Without proper nutrition, children and families can not prosper. Healthy bodies are needed for healthy minds. Finally, we have a social services component that is ready to help during unforeseeable and emergent needs.
