A Place of Hope and Happiness

The purpose of the Jonestown Family Center is to improve the general welfare of people in Jonestown and the surrounding area. The Family Center strives to increase educational and health opportunities through its programs.

The Jonestown Family Center follows a Christian philosophy, focusing on respect for each person as a child of God. All programs strive for the full development of the human person. We believe that education must be holistic -- mind, body and spirit.

The Jonestown Family Center for Education and Wellness is a separately incorporated sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.

Thanks to all of you who help us during the year! Gratefully, Sr. Teresa and the staff at the Jonestown Family Center.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Jonestown!

Spring has sprung, daffodils have bloomed, and summer is almost here in Jonestown after a VERY cold and icy February and March! Thank you to all our friends for your prayers, friendship, support, and monetary donations!

Easter activities, the annual Memphis Zoo trip, Father’s Night, Mother’s Night, Baby University, and the first annual King and Queen Coronation and Raffle have kept the staff and volunteers busy this past month. Look for pictures on the various tabs on our web site.

Theme of the Coronation was Jonestown’s Shining Stars and the little children truly shone! Their parents worked so hard to sell raffle tickets and to donate to the event. The children not only looked beautiful, but shone with the light of love. We’re grateful to all the parents and friends who helped make the coronation such a huge success.

We are now able to take credit card donations through PayPal on our web site. Just click on the “donations” page and choose your amount!

For those of you who shop on Amazon, the Family Center is now a designated charity on Amazon Smile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to a registered charity. Just go to , list the Jonestown Family Center as your charity, and shop away!

Gratefully, in Christ,

Sr. Teresa Shields and staff of the Jonestown Family Center
