Lorna M. Johnson Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) health-licensed entity, building 21st-century leaders who will impact neighbourhoods in the US and around the world. The foundation provides children and youth, ages 6-22 with supportive services for healthy lifestyles.
The Foundation is based on the simple idea of collaboration with local health organizations and pharmaceutical companies to implement “Healthy Lifestyle” seminars and services. Our topics cover a full range of health issues including: HIV/AIDS awareness for the teen population and Addressing Obesity starting with elementary-age children.
Every community has resources to help youth achieve the dream of living a happy and full life. The Lorna M. Johnson Foundation helps to fulfil those dreams. In addition to our local health initiatives, the Lorna M. Johnson Foundation offers support in underserved communities abroad. In 2000 the foundation constructed a fully-functioning computer lab in Clarendon, Jamaica and provided $100,000 of donations toward helping the underserved including giving away hundreds of toys through a toy-drive launch. A scholarship was established at one of the most prestigious universities in the Caribbean, in honor of educator, Dr. Ionie “Gem” McPherson.
