Mama Joy: a life devoted to giving
Anitrice Jackson, better known as “Mama Joy,” started Nana’s Restart in 2013 as a way to serve her community of Overtown, Miami. Since then, she has been doing this work on her own time and dime… because her passion and purpose is people.
Mama Joy shares with us how her own life struggles motivated her to create this organization. When she was in need, she received help for herself and her children. Years later, she is now doing everything she can to help children and their parents by getting them school supplies, toys for Christmas and more.
Mama Joy's entire family is involved in Nana's Restart, and despite limited resources, the contribution and the impact they are having on people's lives is simply amazing.
Life has not always been easy for Mama Joy. But she never gave up. Her determination and strength helped her navigate tough times, and she is now doing everything she can to help other families in need. A beautiful example of generosity and giving-back.
