Transformative Power: Impact, Insights, and the Path Forward


The Moriah Group’s work digs beneath the surface — delving into the heart of the distinctive challenges that young people of color, their families, and communities face by championing more equitable policies that reduce disparities; amplifying the strengths of culturally responsive and community-centered solutions; and supporting the leaders who are critical to this work. In our inaugural impact report, we share the stories of our successes and lessons learned — along with the outcomes of our commitment to healing, equity, and power building.

“…we collaborate with our partners to implement sustainable social change and create thriving communities for young people of color (YPOC). We achieve this through our dedication to collective actions, equity, and the transformative power of community building.”

“We support leaders who are building, maintaining, and wielding power for social change in their communities by offering low-fee fiscal sponsorship, no-cost technical assistance, and annual healing retreats.”

“We are not just intermediary funders; we are partners who are committed to understanding and responding to the unique needs and aspirations of those we support. This dynamic, responsive relationship is the cornerstone of our impact.”


  • The dehumanization and culturally responsive healing practices frameworks help youth of color to embrace their cultures, embark on healing journeys, awaken critical consciousness, and empower themselves to write authentic narratives about their lives and communities.
  • Responding to partner insights, we shifted our model to blend unrestricted, general operating funding with self-directed, individualized technical assistance. This refined approach offers greater autonomy and tailored support.
  • We recognize the importance of listening to diverse voices and expanding our work to include all young people of color (YPOC) — no matter their gender, social identity, language, or ethnicity.
