Welcome to Brewster's Place
"We never fail until we stop trying." Lamon Brewster
Brewster's Place recognizes the many challenges that life presents and has a strong desire to reach out, connect, and offer programs, services, and mentoring to help those we serve to navigate life and win.
It is from a seat of compassion and hope that we share hope, skill development, and unwavering support of both youth and adults in every community.
Here at Brewster's Place, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2015, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Nonprofit Organization upon: youth mentoring, humanitarianism and positive conflict resolution.
Brewster's Place presents a world-class resiliency & diversion program to participants to cost-effectively navigate through the justice system successfully. They will gain productive life skills, adaptive coping strategies and improve personal & interpersonal conflict resolution.
Additionally, we want to provide a means for all to find ways to cope with life through The Art of Expression Stress & Anxiety Management Program.
We are dedicated to helping to reduce the stigma associated with addressing mental health issues. We know life is tough and we all need an outlet to express it, be heard, and find resolve in healthy ways.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Jack Alter, 18
"Lamon is such a nice, funny dude. Boxing is more mental. He talked to me more about life than boxing. I learned so much about life. Working with him changed my perspective on life. Any kids with anger management will definitely benefit. It improved both my physical and mental health."
Sergeant First Class
"To be involved with boxing allows one to be aggressive and relieve stress in a positive manner. Being a Type A personality and to have a discipline that offers a release of depression, stress and all kinds of emotional difficulties has been a blessing in my life and the lives of many others."
Derrick Hagedorn, 30
"My life was decently rough. Athletics always helped me. Diagnosed at 18 with PTSD & Major Depressive Disorder, I had social challenges, trouble controlling emotions & deciding what to do with my life and career. Boxing let me go into the gym & speak with actions. Now, as a mentor myself, working with Lamon gives me hope to look up to someone who is a fighter and can handle life. Lamon is a mentor in the field. He helps not only with fighting, but in terms of life."
