JoyJ's mission is to provide essential support to homeless and needy 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 package and ii) converse with them to ensure they know they are loved, respected and not forgotten.
In the past 5 years, we have touched 90,621+ lives, with over 4700+ volunteers distributing 561K+ items. We ask our volunteers to lead and organize outreaches anywhere in the world. We provide assistance, a toolkit, and all the necessary items. We also have lead volunteers to help new outreaches get started. 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.
