Established in 2005, the Jason Hayes Foundation exists primarily to support and enrich the lives of children who have had less than an ideal start in life. Special emphasis will be dedicated to children who have been in the foster care system and children who have been subject to early abuse or trauma resulting in emotional and behavioral issues.
Support will be in the form of grants donated to those organizations and individuals who advocate, educate and promote programs and practices that promote more positive outcomes for our most vulnerable children.
Direct support would be to children in the form of “scholarships” to attend programs and summer camps. Special consideration will be given to children attending programs and camps that demonstrate an awareness of how to help children with behavioral issues and who advocate, educate and remediate behaviors through skill building and education.
We will have met our goals if we can continue to help the children we seek to serve find and attend appropriate programs; and help those organizations that support, promote and educate those who endeavor to help this population through understanding and education.
