Joshua's Heart is not your typical non-profit organization. It is a unique group of youngsters led by Joshua to embark in a great cause to help out people fight hunger and other basic needs. This organization accepts under age kids and helps them by inspiring ways to get involved with the community and develop a sense of social responsibility among its members.

I became involved with Joshua's heart because I wanted to make a difference in this world and Joshua's heart is the only organization that allows children under 15 or 16.

What can I say about Joshua that hasn't already been said.....
He is a little kid with a big heart and an even bigger dream to stomp out hunger one family at a time, and he's doing just that! I'm very proud of Joshua. May God continue to bless him as he continues to be a blessings to others!

Joshua's Heart Foundation has been doing wonderful work in the community for several years. The foundation continues to provide assistance to very needy families with little or no food. Almost every weekend there is some type of event. A food distribution, backpack program, a group of volunteers planting a community garden etc. With little to no overhead the foundation continues to make an impact.

If you are looking for an opportunity to have your children volunteer in a safe friendly organization with other families that are interested in stomping out hunger this foundation is for you.

Keep up the great work Joshua and team. All of you are truly making a difference!

I was introduced to Joshua by a friend two years ago, and as soon as I met him and heard about his charity, this young man inspired me. He is soft spoken and very polite, but beneath that understated persona, lies an extremely focused and hard working individual. His dedication to stomp out hunger in South Florida and the world, is so contagious that his charity has grown exponentially in the last few years, delivering thousands of pounds of food to hungry children and families, one family at a time.

In a private conversation not too long ago, he confided in me telling me that he wanted to meet President Obama so that he could tell him about his plan to end world hunger. Somehow, I am convinced that that dream is not too far from becoming a reality. Joshua's Heart is in my opinion one of the most unique and heart warming charities in existence. I am blessed to be part of it and will continue to spread the word. Thank you Joshua :)

I am wildly impressed with Joshua and the work that his foundation is doing to stomp out hunger here in Miami. It's amazing to see someone so young so willing to give back to the community. Joshua's compassion is contagious and I encourage everyone to learn about this foundation and do what they can to help.

It makes me think that if a child was able to have the heart to help others at such a young age. We as adults should be able to find it in our hearts to help others. We as a society have gotten away from caring about others, we need to take a step back and care for others.

Joshua's Heart foundation has been helping thousands of homeless,hungry,needy,and low income families. The fact that Joshua being a child with such a big heart is a blessing from god for all the people who benefited from his organization. I truly hope his dream of spreading worldwide will become a reality.

It is my third year with the foundation, and it goes beyond to help others. It mostly consists of young people, but is very efficient and on task.

While serving on the board it's important to recruit some volunteers. My whole family are recruited and i love to give food out to the needy. I think Joshua has a big heart and influences us all in a great way.

Lets feed more hungry people with the love of giving we all want to share.
