Candace is defining herself as a power player outside the reality TV space in the maintenance of multiple avenues of influence in entertainment, humanitarianism, and the beauty space by using her platform of 370K+ to give back to underprivileged children in her hometown of Memphis, TN.
She founded 501c3 URBNTherapy which is currently developing an app providing a free directory that allows children, teens, and adults of any age to obtain mental health resources and free therapy sessions with black therapists; providing a familiar outlook that contributes in changing the stigma of "therapy" in underserved communities with the ultimate purpose of re-establishing black households, addressing and healing the traumas of survival trauma in black communities, strengthening the legacy of African American people and bulldozing generational curses.

URBNTherapy also hosts #OperationChristmasGiveback, an annual event which surprises qualified kids and teens with shopping sprees during the holiday season. They have in total awarded 250+ kids shopping sprees and hosted financial literacy courses via zoom in the pandemic.
Candace is passionate about millennials and all taking the stand to heal the community and address traumas within our culture that has plagued us for generations.
urbntherapy - The app
URBNTherapy is working diligently to complete our virtual community project of designing an application that will serve as a free resource for those who cannot afford mental health services.
Your support helps us to:
-Promote/market to the community and audience that needs the app resources the most
-Design the app and improve on the functionality and operations of the app.
-The technology to source our directory and continuously expand it city by city.
-Support a team of tech professionals that can update and secure the app.
URBNTherapy works continuously to change the stigmas of mental health in lower income, minority communities; with a special focus towards African American, at risk communities. We have been and still are fighting countless battles to elevate ourselves after disenfranchisement ; especially for the many black house holds struggling with single parent foundations, negative street influence, finances, and living everyday life in survival mode.
Survival trauma for our people should not be a standard. #HealTheVillage
