Medical In-Touch Services, OMEGA Psi Fraternity, Regina's Winter Drive; S.C.M.B.A., W.A.T.O.E.S, Inc.
ABCD was instrumental in the organization of this group and currently serves as convener. The purpose of this non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization is to foster the development and growth of minority business in Stark County. As a result of the efforts of State Rep.
