JOY is a national organization providing for the spiritual, emotional and practical needs of Jewish children from impoverished or dysfunctional families. JOY for Our Youth Inc. is a registered national, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, which was established in 2000.
JOY was established in 2000 to help those
children who were on the streets with no
one to turn to for help. The dire situation of many
young children was at dangerous levels. JOY for Our Youth stepped
in to fulfill a need for children who had no where
to go and no one to turn to for help.
JOY for Our Youth provides food, clothing, shelter, health and
wellness, education, after school programs, special
training, mentoring, tutoring, private counseling,
summer programs, and guidance to children from the
ages of six to eighteen.
