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,

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Jonestown! It’s hard to believe that the Montessori and toddler children have already been here since August. Lots of children are enjoying learning and more and more adults are participating in the Fitness and Health Club.

Montessori programs typically cost $17,000 per child per year. Our costs are $4,000 per child per year. Parents pay on a sliding fee scale, but can only pay a fraction of the full cost of the program. We rely on grants, fund-raisers and donations from friends like you to make up the cost of the program.

Please click on the PayPal icon if you would like to donate. All donations are tax-deductible.

At our back to school parent meeting, when asked why they were sending their children to Montessori, several replied, “I came to the Learning Center when I was a child, and loved it and now I want my child to be here.

We are so grateful to you—friends who have supported our programs for years and new friends, too.

May God be with us as we work together to provide excellent education and wellness opportunities to the children and families of Jonestown.

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!
