Foundation History

Dr. Joyce Jones, a Minister with a vision and mission concerning our children (6-12 years), youth (13-17 years) and families as a whole.

Over twenty years ago I heard the cry and answered the call to help our community. In 1987 I started a prevention outreach program that assisted and educated our children and parents in their plight. I did this through one-on-one tutoring, counseling, G.E.D. program, retreats, substance abuse programs, workshops and referrals. These programs help steer our children back from the wrong and non-productive road of life, to a more educated, constructive, and responsible life.


In 2004 I expanded my passion and took the program to the streets. I went into the school to begin to deal with petty conflict leading to violence, which today is rising more and more every year. If there will ever be a change it must start with early prevention and outreach.
