The idea for the Reality Checks bean when the RICH Program hosted a Barber Shop Talk several years ago. The event had men born and raised in Cherry Hill come and speak to the young men of the community while they got free back to school haircuts. The men shared stories, laughs, and tears while the young men listened. The event has evolved into a citywide Reality Check where local and national speakers come and present information, stories, and advice on pre selected topics. There are also educational, military, and job placement support at the event along with food from local entrepreneurs.
