Fists in Solidarity

About Us

Inspiring people of all ages to make a difference.

Who We Are?

Family Is Everything Outreach began in 2016 after the death of my little brother Dalen Risby who passed away at the young age of 18. At that moment I realized how many lives he touched with his contagious smile and positive outlook on life, which motivated me to not only make a difference but to also inspire others to make a difference. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a family to build a community.

We have officially been operating as a 501c3 nonprofit organization and proudly serving the Nashville community since 2018.  We have been able to grow and thrive simply by sticking to our mission statement “inspiring people of all ages to make a difference” and keeping our focus on family. Our 3 programs “Be The Best You”, “We Are The Community” and “Classic Men Youth Foundation” have all seen monumental growth throughout the midst of the pandemic.


We have successfully implemented our plans in each program and are proud to say we are in full operation in each segment  of our organization. “Be The Best You” now has over 100 young ladies in our sports program. “We Are The Community” continues to meet the needs of those underprivileged and underserved by providing essential needs and part time employment. “Classic Men Youth Foundation” continues to provide mentorship to our youth and also has kick started our youth boxing team.

Our most pressing need is financial support and volunteer support. All of our programs are having an immediate impact on our community  so our numbers continue to double our initial projections. We need financial support for gym rentals, equipment, uniforms  and training cost (60,000 annually), uniform expenses for 100 young ladies and 15 young men (20.000 annually). We need volunteer support for fundraisers and we also are in need of coaches.
