Building community and development.

The See A Need. Meet A Need. (“SANMAN”) name originated in the early 2000’s as a mentoring program designed for urban youth.  The program was created by Martin Rogers with a specific focus on providing positive leadership for single parent households in Southwest Houston.  Fast forward 20+ years, the SANMAN name is now instrumental in the vibrant and growing Houston creative community.
