JoyJ's mission is to provide essential support to homeless and low-income populations through direct volunteer-led outreach programs - we create outreach packages with food, toiletries, and other essentials and seek out homeless on the streets and those in need in shelters to i) give them the JoyJ comfort bag and ii) converse with them to ensure they know they are loved, respected and not forgotten. We want to better communicate with our large volunteer base and need assistance organizing our volunteer information into our database. Due to COVID-19, we have seen a tremendous increase in individuals and families living in poverty. Being able to connect with our volunteers to assist with the increasing number of Outreaches is crucial. We need your help!

We foster community within our volunteer base and with those on the street and in need by engaging in conversation (we adhere to COVID guidelines, so we are doing shelter drop-offs) and distributing resources with are essential items in our JoyJ comfort bags.
