About Us

The Mike B foundation was established in 2008 by Shirley Rhodes to commemorate the life of her son Michael L. Barron who was tragically murdered in March of 2007 while sitting in the parking lot of a local convenience store.

Mike B., as he was affectionately known, was a son, a brother, a father and a friend. The family of Michael Barron has chosen to turn their pain into action by reaching out to young people in the community who have made bad choices but are making an attempt to turn their life around. This foundation was established to assist young males who are returning to the community from state and local correctional facilities and reintegrating back into our communities.

We hope that you will join us in our efforts to make our community stronger and safer through supporting those who are turning their life around by making positive choices.
