Where Dreams Find Family
More than college grants and handouts; we consider what we do as a family affair where financial, academic, and emotional support abounds. Financial aid is great, but we offer something deeper: belonging. At Adopt A Destiny, first-generation, low-income black and brown students are welcomed (adopted) into our family, where support goes beyond scholarships. We’re cheerleaders for each student, their dreams are our mission, and their success is our shared family celebration.
ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION
Our mission is to open access to Higher Education for first-generation, black and brown students. Each student we support directly improve our communities.
PATHWAYS TO EXCELLENCE
At the heart of our mission lies the Pathways to Excellence program, providing financial and emotional resources through education access and community upliftment.

Dr. SASHALEE BEASLEY
Sashalee Beasley is the inspiration behind our effort to help students. In 2016, our founder Morlette Cowan, committed to paying for Sashalee’s studies when she learned of her plight in a local newspaper. Over the next five years, she would support Sashalee with tuition and other costs.
We celebrate her recent achievement, completing her college studies with a well-earned medical degree.
Britney Ming, a Titchfield High alumna and a 2023 UWI graduate, holds a BSc in Bio-Engineering.
Upon graduating, her final project caught the attention of a professor at Florida Institute of Technology who, after meeting Britney, awarded her a full-ride scholarship to begin her doctorate studies and a part-time assistant teaching role – demonstrating the far-reaching impact of our support.
Join us in planting seeds of hope and changing destinies.
