My family and I have been volunteering with Joshua's Heart Foundation for a little over 9 years. My daughters were 5 years old when they started. JHF is one of the very few foundations that not only allows, but encourages children to start volunteering at an early age. The foundation does amazing work and has a true generous spirit among everyone. They have a true mission of community and education. I highly recommend volunteering. I believe JHF has given more to us as a family than we have given to them.
My experience with Joshua’s Heart has been nothing short of incredible and amazing. The foundation has helped so many people, and one of the best parts is that it is run by youth, so you get to be really involved and truly see the impact you are having on the community. I am so thankful to Joshua, Claudia and everyone who has helped me and so many others at the organization, for always doing their best to help the community, being open to new ideas, and inspiring so many people, including me, around the world. Thank you for everything, I am so grateful for you.
Joshua’s Heart Foundation makes the impossible, possible. It teaches people to be kind and take care of one another. It teaches teamwork and leadership as people pack hope boxes for the distribution to the homeless. The efforts inspired me to do more and I started a project called YOUTH4WOMEN within JHF. With this project I collect donated hygiene products and distribute them to homeless women. Joshua’s Heart Foundation has changed my heart, helped out millions of people and keeps on inspiring others to help.
Every time I volunteer at Joshua’s Heart I always have a smile on my face. This nonprofit organization is filled with the most amazing and caring people doing their absolute best to help feed their community. If you are in need of food assistance or want to volunteer Joshua’s Heart Foundation is the best place to go.
Love the way Joshua’s Heart gets the youth involved and puts them in the position to lead and make their own decisions about how they want to tackle the problem of world hunger.
Everyone is so friendly and it is very organized. It gives a sense of community and everyone is so nice!
During the COVID Pandemic, I wanted to find a way to give back to my community; I did some research and found Joshua's Heart Foundation. During my first day at the pantry, I was immediately welcomed into a warm hospitable environment. Everyone at the pantry, volunteers and staff alike, made sure that I was participating in a task that I wanted to do and ensured that I got the most out of my experience. The impact that this organization has, especially during the COVID Pandemic, is remarkable. There are so many families in dire need for food around Miami who come to the pantry and are treated with a high standard of hospitality as well. I am grateful to have found this organization and I am proud to be a volunteer at Joshua's Heart Foundation.
I 100% recommend joining Joshuas Heart. The way they help out the people in need always warms my heart. Everybody is always so heart warming and it feels like a family. Helping others always makes you feel so much better and especially with Joshuas Heart Foundation.
Amazing group of people! Great energy and vibes. So happy to be a part of an organization that has given me so many opportunities and helped me make such great friends!
I began volunteering with Joshua's Heart at the age of 10, and have now been with them for over 7 years. Being apart of this amazing foundation has not only given me such amazing opportunities but has shaped me into the person I am today. Over the years I have been able to experience great things with JAB, I have had the opportunity to attend the United Nations in NYC, advocate for hunger in Washington, feed thousands and thousands of families, and much more. I am now Chair of our Junior Advisory Board and will continue with my efforts.
Joshua’s heart is truly an amazing organization that aims to make a change in the world. It has provided me and many others with the opportunity to give back to our community, helping to make a significant change in our city.
I have been volunteering with JHF from the age of 13 years old. I sat on the Junior Advisory Board for about 7 years and it was one of the best experiences ever. Everyone is so welcoming and kind. I have made many friendships and relationships with others through the foundation that will last a lifetime. Over the years, I have had the chance to travel to places like Chicago and Wisconsin to represent JHF along with other JAB members. I am so grateful to still be apart of JHF, I am currently the Social Media Coordinator and an Alumni Director. #JHFFAMILY
This is a great organization to be apart of, from the welcoming energy given to the kind hearted mission with the organization, you’ll always have a good experience. With being apart of this non profit organization, i’ve met so much people and have stepped out of my comfort zone to give back to my community. Joshuas Heart is a foundation that is always ready to help and always goes above and beyond for others.
Joshua’s Heart is an amazing foundation that truly lets the youth take charge and lead many distributions, projects and much more. I have been working with this foundation since 2013 and have helped make such a huge impact in the tri-county area. I have not only worked with the board and volunteers but I have gone to Washington DC with JHF to advocate for the ending of malnutrition and poverty. During the current pandemic I have been volunteering at the pantry and helping out so many people who were hurt during this time. The pantry is very friendly and like a family!!
My work with Joshua's Heart Foundation has been a tremendous experience for me. Since the 1990's, I have founded 5 food banks/food cooperatives around the world. As Program Director in the midst of COVID-19, it has been an exciting challenge. What has been the most heartwarming and amazing aspect is that I have never met more devoted employees and volunteers who work so hard to ensure that the most vulnerable members of the community receive food. It is a truly a blessing!
I had an amazing experience. Everyone was extremely nice and helped out on my first day.
Volunteering with the Joshua Heart Foundation has been a engaging and fun experience with welcoming and positive people. I have felt like I have really made a difference with Joshua Heart, and I love volunteering with them. Their message is amazing and being part of their mission is both meaningful and exciting.
The Joshua’s Heart Foundation is an amazing organization dedicated to providing food for thousands of families in the community. Between it’s fantastic staff and volunteers of all ages, the Joshua’s Heart Organization makes everyone feel at home. Through it’s hard work, the Joshua’s Heart Foundation has helped in the fight against world hunger and its extraordinary service should not go unnoticed
My kids and I spent the day helping at Joshua's Heart Foundation as part of a requirement for our kids' church program, and so we signed up to help make up their community service hours. However, after spending the day with Ms. Peggy and the rest of the staff and volunteers at JHF, we found that what started as a to-do task quickly turned into an enjoyable day knowing we were helping make a difference. This organization and its staff are truly doing a lot of good out here for the community and our people who need the help. Everyone at JHF has a heart for what they are doing whether sorting vegetables or unloading a truck, everyone works well together and works towards the purpose of serving others. We enjoyed helping at Joshua's Heart Foundation and we look forward to volunteering again.
I set up a volunteer experience with Joshua's Heart for my team, we had about 24 people who came to help with food distribution. We had a great time helping the organization give food to people and learned a lot about food insecurity in Miami. We enjoyed our time with the organization and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to volunteer. They were very organized and fair in their distribution process and had plenty of activities to do up until the food distribution! Once it was time to give food, everyone had a role and interacted with the people. This was the best part! We saw who would be consuming the food and were able to chat as they chose their produce. We also liked that the organization gave healthy, fresh food to people, not unhealthy, processed foods. We had a wonderful time! We met everyone at the organization including the founder, which made the whole experience extremely rewarding. If you are looking for a place to volunteer, choose Joshua's Heart, their mission is very inspiring and their impact is huge. Without them, the community would not be the same. I would recommend working with them to anyone, as they were very helpful and open to ideas, along with being very accommodating and patient.
I am the proud parent of three JHF members! Our family has been directly impacted by the foundation's amazing work for over 10 years. They not only address the ever important basic need and right of every human to live without hunger, they also empower and support the growth of future leaders by empowering our youth and making them believe in their own powers to generate change and to do good on any scale they wish. The foundation was founded by Joshua Williams at age 4.5 and remains youth operated. Love them! Attend one of their events and you will be moved to indescribable joy! Their energy and vibe are contagious!
Our lives are enriched by our involvement with JHF. It is an honor to know Joshua (abd his mother Claudia), and I encourage anyone to join in their efforts to help others, at least once and you will become a regular. Incredibly organized events and a focus on the needy that drives their success. Congratulations Joshua, you are a hero and an inspiration.
Although I am a new member, I can wholeheartedly say that this is an amazing non-profit organization that has provided me with fantastic volunteer opportunities and leadership experience.
I have been volunteering for Joshuas Heart for a while now and it has truly been an amazing experience. I love volunteering for this organization and love everything that it stands for. The mission of Joshuas Heart is to Stomp Out Hunger, and they do it regularly with food distributions and with a food pantry that you can walk up to and receive Food. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a difference in this world.
Joshua’s Heart foundation is a wonderful organization dedicated to providing food and surplus items for those in need. I had the opportunity to volunteer for this non-profit organization and all
I could say is that they are well
organized and caring. Everyone who works there gives 100% effort to make sure those in need have what they came for. Thank you for your dedication!
I was a former junior advisory board member for Joshua’s Heart Foundation as well as a volunteer. I love this organization and everything it stands for. This organization was created in order to help people struggling and in need of food in underdeveloped communities. There are many people starving and hungry with no resources in order to get daily food, which is why this organization is so necessary in not only my community but various other communities around the United States.
Joshuas Heart Foundation was started with the heart of an innocent child just simply wanting to help the hungry! The foundation grew over the years with the help of many other innocent children who saw the vision to help the needy, hungry and helpless! This foundation has to continue for many years to come. Lives are changed! Future leaders are being created! Please support this fantastic foundation!!
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.
I happily recommend this organization. Joshua's heart is full of individuals who care about their community. My daughter has been a member of the Jr Advisory Board for the past 6 years. They have organized food distributions, they have provided a hot meal and Christmas presents along with books for families at their annual Christmas feast, they have provided food at Thanksgiving and now they have a food pantry that's open daily for those who are in need. The organization not only provides for the community, but it gives our children an outlet to serve and lead. I can't think of a better Organization for your children to be a part of. It was founded by a young man and it shows that you are never too young to make a difference.
Joshua’ Heart Foundation has been such a huge part of my daughters life for so many years, they have mentored and supported her through middle school and all the way through high school graduation . Every year through their vision Joshua and Claudia have come together to not only give to the community but build up the confidence of and spirit of giving to its members. I think it is a wonderful organization that selflessly gives 365 days a year!
I first encountered Joshua's Heart foundation a few weeks after my daughter started middle school . We were going through the transition of a new school experience and almost immediately we were informed that the school was having an event to help families with food, uniforms, and school supplies! All I could say is wow what a wonderful new school ! My family was so surprised that at the event kids of all ages were packaging goodies , backpacks, and essentials for all of us families. Our school had the need and Joshua's Heart Foundation really provided more than food, they showed our students that they too could help make a difference ! My daughter joined Joshua's Heart Foundation ! I want to say Thank you to the dedicated volunteers and partners, who make Joshua's mission possible.
JHF is the best Non-Profit Oganization for young people who want to give back to their communities. Not only are JHFs volunteers carrying out Joshua's vision, they are fully supported to carry out their own, with the organizations help. If you want your kids involved in an organization with high value, morals, integrity, and opportunities to grow into good citizens, give JHF a try. Family for life!
Joshua's heart foundation is such a unique organization. The simple fact that it took the heart and determination of one little boy, with the support of his mother and others around him, to make such a great difference in the lives of many, is inspirational in itself. Joshua is such a great role model and ambassador for children everywhere, and surely opens the eyes of adults as well, while leading in the arena of stopping world hunger. Joshua was kind enough to come out to our school on Career Day and motivate our Elementary school students to make a difference in the communities in which they live, in whatever way they can. He also demonstrated to them that you are never to young to move mountains. His humanitarian values resonate throughout the cafeteria and his words resounded in the ears of our young students. He made such an impression on them. Not only did Joshua attend Career Day, he developed a bond with our school, as he has with many. He graciously introduced and implemented his food distribution program to our families and the community, feeding 100 families. What a magnificent gesture for a Title one school which 90% of the student population is on free an reduced lunch. We are actually preparing for our second implementation of the food distribution program at the end of April. Joshua, his mother and entire staff are kind, caring, and giving. We appreciate their hard work, dedication and commitment towards making this world a better place one meal at a time. Thank you!!!
Joshua's heart is a great nonprofit. It's mission is to Stomp Out Hunger! And they do it regularly with food distributions and with a food pantry that you can walk up to and receive Food. It has been a great organization to be a part of and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a difference in this world
Joshua's Heart has shaped me into the person I am today. By allowing me to be Vice Chair of the Junior Advisory Board, I have had the chance to step out of my comfort zone. I have learned many skills that I can put to use in all of my future endeavors. Not only have I learned very useful skills, but I have met some incredible people who I have been able to make good friendships with.
Impossible not leaving JHF with a smile in the face. It is an amazing charity to volunteer. The administrators are great and sweet people; they make you experience an incredible day. Definitely, I’ll be there again.
Great charity to volunteer with, genuine people and great work being done .
We had a great time stocking shelves with ladies. It was nice to know that we are helping people come to JH pantry and find good nutritious food. We will be there next week to help out again.
Today, I volunteered at the thanksgiving grocery giveaway on the behalf of Joshua’s heart organization. Emily, a junior board member organized the event that helped feed 260 families in north Miami. It was an excellently planned and executed event that brought youth and parent volunteers together with the local less fortunate community in the true sense of thanksgiving. It was an extremely humbling and gratifying experience. I am thankful for all the hard work it took to organize such an event and definitely plan on joining more events put forth by this organization .
I helped out at the thanksgiving meal food collection this morning. It was such a wonderful experience and everyone is so kind and welcoming. I was able to talk to the less fortunate and provide them with a complete thanksgiving meal for them. Joshua’s Heart really opened my eyes up to world hunger and i am so glad I joined their foundation. Definitely recommend.
I have been volunteering with Joshua’s Heart Foundation for many years and I have cherished every moment. This organization is unique, unlike any other. One of my favorite aspects is that it is ran entirely by young people who are trying to make a difference in the world. Personally, I have enjoyed volunteering alongside many like minded individuals. Joshua’s Heart isn’t just about reducing poverty levels and ending world hunger, they take their time to build young leaders. Great organization!
Joshua’s Heart is not just about giving food, but also sharing your heart with those that need it most. Members are encouraged to spearhead their own projects or participate in food distributions and food drives in their local areas. Active volunteers are not only helping themselves become better people, but by doing so, help so many others! These teens are true embodiments of the phrase “You are never too young to make a difference.” From my experiences with Joshua, his foundation, and all the incredible volunteers that make his dream a reality, I’ve learned that anyone can do whatever they set their mind to no matter their age.
Joshua’s Heart Foundation is such an amazing group bringing youth from a variety of communities and cultures together to help others. JHF inspires kids of today to be leaders of tomorrow with care and compassion for all.
Wonderful organization that promotes love in action with a focus on youth empowerment to make positive change.
I don't even know where to begin. I've been apart of Joshua's Heart for about a year now and the impact is just an absolute blessing. I see so many people receiving food assistance for their household and its just heart warming to see that a little kid made it his duty to help other people. The volunteers really work hard at making sure they do their part to help all who come to receive donations. In my opinion the charity really benefits those who give and receive. It's really an eye opener to see that life isn't always so sweet in sunny South Florida and there are people in need of help. But Thank God there are charities out there like Joshua's Heart Foundation who care about helping others and are committed to STOMPING out world hunger! THANK YOU JOSHUA AND KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK
This is a great place to volunteer, as soon as I arrived I felt welcomed. Joshua's Heart is a great organization, with great people. The effect this organization has on the community is pretty incredible. If you're looking for somewhere to help this is it.
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.
Joshua’s Heart is a hands on experience that lets you witness the fruits of our labor. Wonderful way to teach my daughter and her friends a life long lesson. Well organized and a very friendly environment for all.
Our family has volunteered at Joshua’s Heart serval times. It’s a great organization geared towards the youth contributing to our community. It is a hands on expirence that lets you witness the fruits of our labor. Joshua’s Heart is a wonderful way to help others and to teach our youth some life long lessons.
My name is Susan and my daughter's name is Sad'e who was just invited to be a JAB member we volunteered today with Joshua heart foundation. and I have to tell you it was so humbling, to know that we are making a difference in the world by simply giving back ,the people we met today was so warm and kind it's like we knew them a lifetime we are so glad to be a part of this great organization!# much Blessings.
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!!!
My family has had an incredible experience over the years with Joshua's Heart Foundation. Our daughters have grow as individuals. Thanks Joshua's Heart foundation!!!!
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.
We have been involved with Joshua's Heart Foundation for over 5 years now and each time we feel humbled and privileged to be blessed with the honor to serve. JHF is very much a part of lives as well as a priority. We look forward to the events, gatherings, meetings and plans as the foundation continues to evolve and makes such an incredible difference in our communities.
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.
My child is an active participant with Joshua's Heart Foundation. Children feeding the hungry, what a wonderful way to serve humanity. Joshua's Heart reinforces that kids have power to make a change.
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.

Awesome Foundation. JHF really cares about the homeless and needy families and are so dedicated to serving the community. I love volunteering with the Foundation.
This is the type of organization that spends all it receives in getting food to the hungry.
I have been involved and seen them operate for the past 4 years and it is truly amazing how Joshua has inspired more kids to give back. They all work hard and get the job done without any wasted time, effort or money.
Joshua, is truly an amazing person and so inspirational to our children. Joshua's mom was kind enough to set up a meeting with two of my students to give them expert advice on their Passion Projects about world poverty. He was kind and so helpful to my students he answered questions and gave them great feedback on his experiences and how they can be leaders and help change the world even at their young age.
Thank you Joshua and Claudia ;)
I have been volunteering with Joshua's Heart Foundation for 3 years. Aside from greatly influencing the life of many by stomping out world hunger, this organization has prompted me to grow as a person by allowing me to imprint my mark on the world.
