Our mission is to empower, educate and encourage through special events and provision of resources. Our vision is to spread joy to children and families facing difficult situations.
Some of those we serve are children and families in homeless shelters, transitional homes, domestic violence shelters, foster care, teen parents, elderly, disabled or at-risk.
We have 2 programs to accomplish the mission. F.I.T. Families in Transition program and YL4L Young Learners For Life. (Please visit our Programs page for details).
Thru these 2 programs we host donation drives (for food, clothing, books, toys, school supplies), provide resources (including special event planning) to rescue missions and family service providers, host financial classes (including a homebuyer club) and career development workshops for at-risk families. We also provide after school youth empowerment groups and school break day camps.
The Project Joy college scholarship fund to assist youth who have overcome extreme odds, accepts applications every March.
We have an on-going need for volunteers and love engaging our youth as that’s the very essence of Project Joy (youth giving back to other youth).
Everything we do is carefully designed to empower, educate and encourage our youth and adult participants. Every project we undertake has the ultimate goal of spreading joy.
We appreciate your interest and ongoing support.
