Mistaken Identity Foundation (MI) was founded by business owner, Sheri M. Green in 2013 while working on a government contract to provide workforce development for low-income young adults in Baltimore City.  The foundation was born out of a real-time recognition of the lack of understanding regarding the opportunity being presented and the inability to change their mindset, break old habits or learn life skills.

What differentiates Mistaken Identity Foundation from other community organizations is that while they fund critically need training initiatives that raise awareness and funds to help reshape the mindset of low-income citizens and children who have incarcerated parents (C.w.H.I.P.) through our free and low-cost programs and services.

MI helps identify positive leverage that can children of incarcerated persons, assist teens, young adults and 1st-time offenders course correct their thoughts and actions as well as help offenders re-adjust to home life, breaking old habits, obtaining work skills and gaining/maintaining employment.


We hope you join us in our mission by attending, purchasing a table, sponsoring the event, or sponsoring tickets for young survivors to attend.
