Making A Difference

Bundle of Joy

Project Joy is honored to be part of “the village” and offers a pop up baby boutique every quarter in the Antelope Valley as it’s contribution to the wellbeing of children and families. We provide free diapers, new clothing and essential baby supplies to reduce stress and help birthing families as they welcome home their new bundle of joy.

The boutique is free of charge to those who qualify and join our community “The Village”. 

Qualified members can visit and shop for free at the boutique once before giving birth and once after giving birth. 

Project Joy is the Backbone Agency (2020-22) for LA County Department of Public Health AAIMM (African American Infant and Maternal Mortality) prevention initiative in the Antelope Valley (SPA-1). The focus is on medical equity and the opportunity for a joyous and healthy birth for black birthing families

LA County DMH Transforming LA Pilot (Youth Artificial Intelligence Learning Program)

Youth AI Learning Program

Project Joy’s Youth AI (artificial intelligence) Learning Program is an immersive 6 week group for ages 16-25. It is a pilot funded by LA County Department of Mental Health. 
 
This is a “earn and learn” program where youth learn the basics of artificial intelligence, explore new and emerging career fields, interview leaders from diverse industries, complete a pitch project and get certified in the top 10 soft skills that employers value the most. 
 
Mental health support, resources and practices are central and the group is a safe space for youth learning and interaction.
