About The Jones Family
My life’s passion has always been to help people.
Over the last two decades I have been involved in church ministry—leading children and youth, all the way up to young adults—with that desire in mind.
As God gives me this opportunity to work with Hands and Feet Project, I’m seeing that this heart desire has been fine tuned over the years to wanting to help kids who come from non-traditional families. God has allowed my story to shape my passion. I can remember being in the back of a police car with my younger brother, waiting for my grandma to come pick us up, saving us from the unknown of the foster care system, because of my mom’s inability to care for us due to her drug addiction…my dad was just not present. I wanted that traditional family to be preserved, but it couldn't because of the circumstances, and that has stayed with me as I've grown.
When I met my wife Deb, we were blessed to be able to redeem and expand that desire by not only raising our own traditional, biological family, but also bring foster and adopted children into our home. We as a family have seen kids come permanently into our tribe; we have seen kids be reunited with their families and leave our home; and now we as a family get to partner with Hands and Feet to see orphan and child care in a bigger way.
