Turning Interest into Action

After many years in the social services field and as a youth pastor for over 15 years, Louis Jackson III and his wife Nikhea Jackson founded Redefined Life, Inc., also known as The Village – Anderson, on February 27th, 2020. 
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The Village Anderson emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the youth & families of their community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. During the height of the worldwide pandemic, most of the world’s economies were shut down. However, Louis and the Village’s current Board President, Antonio Quinones, moved into their first office space on the campus of Anderson University in May of 2020. 
The Village officially launched its hallmark mentoring program on September 12, 2020, serving 13 young men and their families.
