Foot Soldiers, LLC
Location & Hours
In 2000, a childhood friend of Barnabas Uba Shakur, (Foot Soldiers Owner) was accused and found guilty of a crime. Only 19 at the time of his arrest and a member of a notorious street gang called the Bloods, he was given a life sentence. Upon his friend's conviction, Barnabas was devastated and decided to create change. In 2001, he founded a nonprofit organization called Bed Stuy's Project Re-Generation (PR-G) to help teens from his "hood."
PR-G catapulted in 2005 with support from foundations and the launch of the Foot Soldiers maintenance program. Through the organization's programs, PR-G served more than 1,000 teenagers, acquired Foot Soldier memberships from more than 600 local property owners, and reached over 3,000 Brooklyn residents through community give back programs.
In 2016, the Foot Soldiers became a seperate entity, keeping the spirit and values of the nonprofit it was born in.
