What started out as an opportunity for my daughter to get her school service hour requirements completed/met ended up as my wish to continue volunteering my time to this worthy and wonderful organization. I witnessed firsthand how Joshua’s Heart helps those in need and less fortunate in our community. I encourage anyone looking into making a difference directly by volunteering their time or indirectly by donating monetary funds to consider Joshua’s Heart Foundation.
I enriched my soul for volunteering and left with a happy heart knowing I made a difference in the lives of those that depend on this worthy organization for a meal and a friendly smile.

Our High School Youth Group was introduced to Joshua's Heart through the Miami DOOR program. We had the privilege of spending a day helping Ms. Peggy, Ms. Sharon and Ms. Pam stock shelves and prepare for food distribution. We then had the pleasure to help distribute food to those in need who came through the doors. Joshua's Heart is a front line operation that puts much needed food in the hands of those who need it. We were impressed that fresh breads, fruits, vegetables and milk were offered in addition to box and canned goods. Our high school youth were treated at the end of the day with a FaceTime session with Joshua himself. The entire day left us feeling humbled and grateful. This organization is a shining example that no matter how old you are or how much you have to get started you can make a difference. All it takes is a love for people and a passion to serve. Blessings to you all of you and the work you do each day. If you are looking for a place to connect and help in a community, please consider Joshua's Heart. You will not be disappointed.

I've been volunteering my services in this foundation for three months now and I can see how joyful the people are with the help that they are receiving from the foundation by somehow alleviating their financial struggles by giving them food. I will continue to help the community by volunteering in this foundation during my free time and I urge everybody to do the same. What a wonderful feeling to be able to help!

As an adult volunteer I found their homeless feeding program to be very rewarding and inspiring. It is well organized and a friendly place to work. They are an above board agency doing really good work. I would recommend anyone to volunteer there.

A few years back I was looking for a place to volunteer hands on. I stumbled upon Joshua's heart foundation and haven't looked back. Their mission is amazing and the enthusiasm of the volunteers contagious. This group has grown since I started volunteering just a few short years ago.
When I can be a part of an event feeding the homeless the rewards from the recipients of HOPE BAGS and BOXES is beautifully received by those most needy. Recently I've started to help with the pantry that distributes to those in the community most in need. I arrive and help sort out the food and put on the shelves. Then when the folks come to pick up their food for the week I help them. It feels like a grocery store and the products that are donated are top notch. By this I mean a great variety and many organic options both fresh and boxed.
By helping at Joshua's heart I feel like I'm with extended family. Even if I haven't volunteered in a couple of months you always recognize a familiar face. Thank you for letting me be a part of your great organization and the opportunity to help others!!!

Sincerely,
Angie Novigrod

Joshua's Heart has been a blessing to thousands of needy, hungry, underprivileged, unemployed individuals throughout the nation. I am a parent and have assisted, as well as my two children; it brings great joy to be a part of such an organisation. The happiness and relief on the faces of the individuals receiving packets is priceless. Please support and help to continue to build this foundation to greater heights.

Joshua's Heart is a great organization that has helped me in so many ways. Giving back to the community through Joshua’s Heart has helped me learn many skills that I believe will help me greatly later in life. Not only has it helped me mature as a person by teaching me important values such as appreciation and respect, but it has also taught me practical lessons such as how to run a business. Joshua’s Heart is a great organization run by amazing kids who have inspired me to consistently make a difference in the community and the world.

Joshua’s Heart is an amazing organization that inspires youth activism. It is rare to find an organization that is run by youth who make an impact on all people of all ages in the community. Through their various events such as food and grocery distributions, packing of supplies for the homeless, etc. youth can get a chance to be involved to help those in need and make a difference in their communities. Their act of kindness then inspires others to complete the circle of giving. Joshua Williams, its founder, exemplifies true leadership and generosity and that anyone, no matter their age, can make a difference in their communities.

My children have been members of Joshua's Heart Foundation for the last 2 years and I am so very proud of them as they help to execute the organization's efforts in feeding the needy and homeless within Florida communities. My children have learnt so much in the process. Not only from their leadership positions within the Junior Advisory Board, but also being team players as they Work together on projects. Most importantly JHF has increased their compassion for those less fortunate. JHF has truly been a gift to my family and to the communities they service throughout the year.

My 10 year old son joined JHF almost 2 years ago after meeting Joshua in his school. He was touched by the facts about how many people didn't have access to food in the world and in our country and decided to join these kids in the quest to change that.
Unlike other foundations, JHF empowers kids to fight for a cause they believe in, it proves them that even at such a young age they can make a difference, enables them to get in touch with people in need and let them experience first hand the joy of giving back and sharing blessings with others.
JHF has certainly impacted my son's view of the world and the importance of getting involved.

As an adult volunteer with Joshua's Heart Foundation since February 2016, I have served meals to the homeless and participated in several food distributions. I have been humbled by each experience and so blessed beyond measure. This is an organization that is truly committed to its mission to end hunger.

During the Feb 2017 food distribution, I had the pleasure of volunteering with Joshua's Heart. There was a team of youth willing and eager to help the residents of Coconut Groove through the food distribution line. I was very impressed with the collaboration with other projects: toiletries and book give away started by friends of Joshua. The items where of excellent quality and the service to the community was organized and timely. I would recommend everyone get involved to help provide the needs in our community.

I had a great experience helping Joshua Heart foundation on the food distribution in coconut grove on January 25.
The whole event was very well organized and the volunteers were helpful on setting up and taking care of the families.
I will participate in any other event from Joshua Heart. They really showed their commitment to nutrition & education of the community.
Thank you for all your efforts.
