How can you support WJRF?
The vision of the Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation is to end the cycle of incarceration by providing children and youth of the incarcerated with a path of hope and a dream of a successful future. We are here to provide the tools and support needed for them to break the cycle of generational incarceration. Our community plays a huge role in this! There are over 800 kids in Franklin County that are impacted by incarceration.
We hope your company will get involved and connect with the foundation in one of these ways:
Provide a Scholarship. We have awarded the Adam Hyatt Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to five high school graduates in our community. Any graduating senior that has been impacted by incarceration is eligible to apply. Our scholarship is renewable for up to three additional years as long as conditions are met.
Adam Hyatt was a part of Franklin County High School for over ten years and anyone who knew Mr. Hyatt knew this;
Adam was a devout Christian, loved his family, his students, and FCHS. Mr. Hyatt passed away in July 2019.
