PATCH , Inc. (Parents and Their Children) is a community based organization that focus on addressing abuse/trauma,  educational disparities, and health disparities. Our primary goal is to advocate for and empower parents and children who are under-represented in the community and forced to suffer in silence.  PATCH, Inc. desires to seek out those that society so often overlooks and forgets. 

James 1:27~ Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress.



Dr. Katrina Sweet

Dr. Sweet is the founder and President of PATCH, Inc. The organization was founded in February of 2011 to address educational disparities in the community. Initially, her personal experiences and love for her son compelled her to not only be an engaged parent but also a community advocate for youth. She was her son's biggest advocate in ensuring he received an equal and fair education in the public school sector. Dr. Sweet's advocacy served as a catalyst that paved a way for high academic achievements by her son.  He graduated as one of the Superintendent's Distinguished Scholars in 2015. He is currently embarking upon his senior year in college, majoring in Biomedical Engineering. 

In addition, as a survivor of sexual abuse, Dr. Sweet has a passion to serve her community by empowering other survivors to live life free from pain, shame, guilt, and self-destruction.  Her mission~ Touching families one prayer at a time!
