Founded in 2008 by Josh and Michelle Jones, The JM Foundation is a non-profit organization that represents the low-income families in Brookfield — families whose households are in need of a helping hand. During trying times we strive to meet these residents’ immediate food needs and attempt to inspire those more blessed to give back.
Being local residents of the Riverside-Brookfield area, we have a personal investment in the well being of our neighborhood. We look forward to giving back to a wonderful community that has given so much to us.
I cannot express the gratitude and appreciation my family and I hold for the JM Foundation. It’s nice to know that there are people out there that genuinely care for the well-being of their neighbors. — a family in need
