JJs Giant Heart - Mission and Vision
JJs Giant Heart is an organization created by kids for kids. Founded by the dreams of one little boy, his aspiration became the motivation for others as they saw what giving did both for him and the children he impacted. His love and desire to help other kids facing tough times with illness and injury became the foundation for this non-profit organization whose mission is to provide education, support, and resources to sick/injured children and their families. Through efforts targeted at assisting families in the initial stages of trauma or diagnosis, JJs Giant Heart seeks to provide the tools and resources for families dealing with a difficult and often unfamiliar time within their lives. Other efforts geared toward community education related to injury prevention and acceptance of individual differences, as well as those aimed at increasing youth involvement in helping others, help support the organizations' core values that include compassion, service to others, community, diversity, acceptance and fun. As JJs Giant Heart Continues to grow, the vision remains to become a first-class organization known statewide for its ability in providing needed resources, education, and support for those families in needs.
Here to Help, Here to Serve
Having a child in the hospital affects an entire family, whether it is due to illness or an injury. These effects last far longer than the stay itself.
JJs Giant Heart was created as a resource for these families, making both an impact and a difference in the communities we service.
