I'm Somebody Not Some-body

I'm Somebody Not Some-Body (ISNS) is a public benefit organization founded by Ms. Dorothy Townsel in May 2005 birthed from the need to decrease the overwhelming increase of teen pregnancies.  Young girls are faced with negative media images, poverty and low self esteem.  The focus of this ministry organization is the development of goal oriented and conscientious girls while building self worthiness and an educational, social and cultural foundation for survival.  Reflecting back on the morals that were installed in her as a little girl, Ms. Townsel want young ladies to know they are truly “Somebody and not Some-Body”
