Jonestown Family Center for Education and Wellness
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,

Hello from the Jonestown family Center! We all are so glad that the snow and ice of winter seems to be giving way to the warm sun and soft breezes of spring. We had an unusually cold January and February, complete with 4 severe weather days! Thanks to all of our donors we are able to carry on with our educational and wellness activities. Many children are learning and many adults are getting in shape and feeling better, thanks to our Yoga classes, Weight Watchers program, and individualized strength training at the Fitness and Health Club.

Our Valentine Ball and raffle at the Jonestown Elementary School last month was a great friend-raiser and a fun night out for all. Browse the pictures and click on our latest newsletter to learn more about our winter activities for children and adults.

Blessings on you, our friends from around the country.

Gratefully, in Christ,

Sister Teresa Shields and staff of the Jonestown Family Center
