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.

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 ;)

Joshua's Heart(JHF) is an amazing organization run by kids, for kids and with kids in mind. They lead by example and take #foodinsecurity very seriously. If you are looking for a way to show your young son or daughter the true meaning of selfless giving and what it means to be your brother's keeper than have them spend a day hey will leave better than when they arrived. These young people are passionate about their mission and welcome all newcomers that what to make a difference, one child or one family at a time.
