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 have been volunteering with Joshua's Heart for several months. Recently I assisted them in packing food, to ship to Jamaica to help stomp out hunger. I was happy to be a part of that mission. Joshua's Heart Foundation is a very hard working, dedicated, and fun team to work with. Amazing job, well done guys.

Joshuas Heart Foundation Inc is an excellent example of our youth making a difference. This organization was started by a young boy with a big heart who wanted to help feed the hungry. It is an organization of children addressing the very grown up problem of hunger. My daughter has learned that you are never too young to help and that an act of kindness takes on a life of it's own. Joshuas Heart is sharing meals and stomping out hunger across the americas.

This week Joshua's Heart Foundation coordinated with a team in Jamaica to send food and clothing for families and children in a rural part of the country. So many hearts and spirits will be uplifted by this act of kindness. A big thanks to God and all his helping hands in making this possible.

Johuas Heart Foundation (JHF) is one of the few non-profits where children can actively participate. For at least four years, I have witnessed the OUTSTANDING work of this foundation which embodies care and respect for all humankind. Today, conversations with my children include topics about social responsibility and it's a direct result of being involved with JHF!

Just a few days ago I volunteered with Joshua's Heart to help pack and ship food to less fortunate and I was simply amazed of the hardwork they put in just to help others. Joshua's heart is my favorite nonprofit organization to work with it. I love what they do for others.

When my 14 year old daughter was required to do community service for her school, JHF was her only option. All other organizations had an age requirement of at least 16. JHF allowed children & teens of all ages, to participate in the planning, packing & delivery of foods for the less fortunate. My daughter learned more about non profit & governing with a global awareness & goal to stomp out world hunger.

My daughter started volunteering with Joshua at age eight. It has been an amazing opportunity for her and for our family to work together with JHF in different ways. JHF has grown and expanded and it is great to see more and more young people join every year to make a change in our world. Congratulations Joshua and Claudia!
