Joining together to eliminate poverty.
It all started in a pancake house in East Tampa. As the future founder of Joining Together Eliminating Poverty (J.T.E.P), I spoke to my date for hours about my dreams to help other families just like mine. I was only a Sophomore in college, but with a two-year-old daughter at home, I knew that I needed to make a better future for more than just me. I remember the complications of riding the bus with a toddler, and the cost of daycare and diapers.
Little did I know that so much would be birthed from that one night. My date became my loving and supportive husband, and now with the pregnancy and birth of our 3rd child, I was inspired to make my dream of helping families a reality. Along with my mother-in-love, we have launched J.T.E.P. to help other moms, dads, and the babies they welcome into the world.
We recognize how important it is to support these families; to show them and their children love and compassion, and more importantly, encourage them to be the best that they can be. We realize what it takes to break the cycle of poverty for these parents and their children, and we are dedicated to helping families make and obtain their goals.
We realized that as we were just beginning, we would have to stay focused on a few programs, but to keep our minds and hearts open for how we would grow in the future.
Our goal is not to simply give a hand-out to people in need; that would only "help" them for a moment. Our goal is to empower our clients, help to give them hope and a future to be excited about and work towards. We want to give tools, love, and inspiration to the families that really want it.
