YOEL HELPS Corporation, a Non-Profit community focused organization, positively impacts and improves the lives of economically disadvantaged African-American (Black, Hebrew, Diasporas) communities by offering solutions that empower, support and connect them to a greater purpose. We are a Torah observant enterprise comprised of business minded solutionists, ministry leaders, music artists, entrepreneurs, apparel designers, barbers, DJ's, educators, athletic enthusiasts, film producers, and community advocates for low income and homeless solutions.
Darwin (YO'EL) Burks, a resident of South Metro Atlanta, and business owner of twenty plus years is the husband to Shontel Burks and father of two adult children.
YO'EL, earned his BS degree in Network & Communications Management, is a Master Technology Instructor, Systems Consultant, Music DJ, and Advocate for homeless solutions. YO'EL Kingdom Outreach, an organization he founded, has served the homeless population of Atlanta since 2016 both independent and alongside other community solution organizations.
In 2022 Abba-YAH (God) directed his outreach operation to include low income communities. The new operation is appropriately named YO'EL HELPS. In offering activity-based engagements, to include a sports and trades training program, business and personal development courses, onsite concerts, health fairs, neighborhood clean-ups, youth field trips, elderly care and more has YO'EL HELPS been able to foster a more enriched relationship with their adopted communities' program. These relationships give space for ministry, job training, healing and community impact for YAH's glory.
YO'EL HELPS aims to make a positive kingdom impact upon countless communities by partnering with like-minded Torah observant believers, business professionals, skilled leaders and resource managers so as to impact each community by providing career-based opportunities through skills-learning, leadership and entrepreneurial training, youth mentoring programs and community healing. May Abba-YAH be praised in our efforts.
Our vison is to restore quality of life to people of color by offering a constructive approach in honoring their historic values, culture, uniqueness, heritage, and contribution as a valuable people; a glorious people of YAH.
Our goal is to equip people of color in low income communities with hope by offering community connections through facilitated sport day camps, skill-trades training, fishing and field trips, movie night, onsite music events, gardening, cooking class, construction and more.
