Other Services

The Elijah Jonathan Center not only provides workshops and programs, we also are focus on human health. We help provide nutrition to many families in poverty by feeding those that have limited or no food. This is a vital part of our programs because it provided them the energy to create success. We also strive to provide necessities such as clothing and items for proper hygiene. Giving them this allows those in poverty not only to be properly nourished but also to feel confident to create success.

Empathy & Kindness

Elijah Jonathan was a man with a kind heart and soul. His smile and joy were very contagious to everyone he knew. He would give anything just to see another person happy, even if that meant he went without. Elijah would have paid his kindness forward to these children in need. Making sure no child was to ever be left behind. Thank you for joining us in honoring the memories of my brother by making sure that empathy and kindness never ends.    Isaac (2021)
