F.I.T. Families in Transition
We empower families in transition (homeless, low-income, teen parents, vulnerable youth, widowed, divorced, single parents) thru our career services program (H.I.R.E.D. – Helping Individuals Reach Employment Desired).
Thru our team of job developers we assist clients to become career-ready, thru group workshops on resume writing, interviewing skills, customer service, leadership and creating a career path based on their passion. We do intake interviews, one on one planning sessions and refer to a broad base of community resources that lead to employment training and successful job placement.
YL4L Young Learner’s for Life
We educate and encourage young students to develop a love for learning by hosting an annual summer field trip for homeless youth. We visit cultural centers, allow a behind the screen look into poetry, spoken word and theatre arts, as well as, local college tours. All with the goal of empowering our youth to dream big, find hidden talents and visualize an exciting future.
We adopt-a-school (Title 1) and help provide items on their wish list thru-out the school year. With the support of sponsors, annually we provide 100+ coats in the winter and gifts during the Holidays for students identified as most in need.
Project Joy also host book donation drives, which helps create libraries at rescue missions and transitional homes. We also re-stock classroom libraries at under-funded public schools.
The Project Joy annual college scholarship fund helps send deserving youth from the Antelope Valley to college. These students have overcome major life challenges (homelessness, foster care, medical issues) and still are top of their class in academics, leadership, community service. It is our joy to support these amazing scholars.
