The JCM H.E.L.P. Center is owned and operated by Joyce Carelock Ministries, a non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization located in Manassas, Va. Their website is www.joycecarelockministries.org.
The H.E.L.P. in their name stands for Helping, Educating and Loving People.
Their goal is to empower individuals involved in their programs by providing them with the educational opportunities, available resources, and training necessary to break the cycles of poverty and emotional instability. They provide stimulating programs that foster personal growth and build strong relationships within the community. They offer the following programs:
Parenting Education Training
The Career Development program consists of an extensive four-week curriculum. They address essential needs to prepare participants for job readiness, along with valuable life skills. With the training from this program, individuals will develop the necessary skills to enter today’s competitive job market.
In addition, they offer 5- and 6-week programs leading to Customer Service Certificates and Administrative Certificates. These offer participants the job-specific training and skills necessary to pursue employment in customer service and administrative positions.
Parenting Education Training
This 12-week course uses the curriculum from the Nurturing Parenting Programs, which are family-centered initiatives designed to build nurturing, child-focused parenting skills as an alternative to intergenerational cycles of abuse and neglect. The Nurturing Programs target at-risk families with children from newborns to 18 years old. The programs have been adapted for special populations and demographic groups, including a particular emphasis on teen parenting.
These one-on-one partnerships are designed to help participants develop positive goals and a vision for success in life. They increase individuals’ self-worth, improve their perspective regarding education, and offer positive support and encouragement to become self-sufficient. Mentors can help participants work through personal issues and develop a career plan as a guidepost for the future.
They believe that all citizens should have access to services that promote physical and psychological health. Their consultants are dedicated to coordinating available resources for personal and community wellness. Consultants work with clients on an individual basis, assessing needs and assisting clients on their own path to long-term self-sufficiency.
