The J.O.S.H. Foundation was created to serve those members of our community who have suffered the loss of a child with support, encouragement, healing, understanding, and comfort every day, one person at a time. We are committed to healing those touched by the loss of a child through remembrance initiatives and support services, honoring with integrity the memories we will always cherish.
Founded by Cindy Hughes, the J.O.S.H. Foundation began in memory of her 21-year old son, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 2003. The pain experienced by Cindy and her family was indescribable. It is like none other, and can truly only be understood by those who have also lost a child, of any age, for any reason.
So, Cindy set out to find a way to provide resources, support, and help in healing to those parents, family members and friends who might also be suffering the loss of a child gone too soon.
Our creative team is currently reviewing ideas for future initiatives, including a scholarship fund, yearly candlelight vigil, and developing a support system for bereaved parents and families.
