Arlene Michelle Harrison, also known as Arlene Community Queen Harrison, is the founder of Mocca Sister 4 Life (Mentoring organization for Girls), founded in 2010.
Her daughters have been in so many organizations which led to her become a volunteer for many years. Arlene loves working with kids; She has always been a leader and was always chosen to be on a team or picked to be the representative for groups, meetings etc.
Arlene’s passion led her to start her own organization for girls, because she has girls and there was nothing like it in their neighborhood. Arlene wanted to make a difference in a girl's life, by keeping them off the street. With so many single mothers who may be forced to work two jobs to support her family or the parent(s) who may like to hang out in turn paying less attention to their child, leaving the children to raise themselves or the streets to raise them.
Her business goal is to one day have our own building where kids can come on a regular basis after school and on the weekend’s for tutoring; attend one of their many sessions that will help the child in their everyday life.
Her mom was influential in her success. Her father died of heart attack leaving her mother with two small children, Arlene, a year old and her brother two years old. Her mother had to work two jobs in order to provide for her family. A single mother raising two small children; Arlene’s mother encouraged her children to participate in any extracurricular activities at school, which she attended. Arlene says, “She is a great mom, awesome supporter and I thank God for her”.
