Street Positive Announces New Publishing Venture
SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. — Street Positive is a child and youth advocacy organization that addresses important issues relating to today’s youth.Street Positive (www.streetpositive.com), based in San Bernardino , Calif. , has become nationally known as a vital force in the community. The organization has branched out further with the recent partnership of Author H. L. Stampley in the publishing and re-releasing of ‘A Fragile Child’s Cry’, a riveting true story about a father’s courage, sacrifice and unconditional love for a special needs child caught in a web of drama as a result of a tumultuous abuse case and the bureaucracy of the child care system.
Author H. L. Stampley’s remarkable strength, tenacity, family love and strong belief in God gave him the ability to fight the good fight of faith… when others would have given up! A Fragile Child’s Cry exposes truths about the child care system and its many flaws.
Stampley strongly affirms the laws of today which determines the outcome of the lives of these children must change and they must change now. “We cannot afford to continue to sit back and do nothing.”
Street Positive CEO Terry Boykins has resided in the Inland Empire for nearly thirty years and is a Cal State University , San Bernardino graduate who holds a B.A. in marketing, management, and communications. He is organizer of the Million Father March and spearheads campaigns and movements that address the needs of critical social and economic issues including fatherhood, homeless youth, abuse, gangs, mentoring and more. The collaboration between Stampley and Boykins came about in 2009 after the Million Father March and Street Positive recognized fathers of disabled children. A colleague connected the two and they joined forces together to help raise awareness about the issues of child abuse in our society.
“Many fathers walk away from their responsibility of parenting good and healthy children looking for direction, love and support. A man who was willing to walk into the responsibility of fathering a special needs child knowing he had no escape clause and no time-out is simply commendable,” declares Boykins.
A Fragile Child’s Cry, published by Street Positive Publishing, is available at www.streetpositive.com. A portion of the proceeds from the book will benefit programs for foster youth, abused and children with disabilities.
