La Familia Movements
About our Non Profit Corporation
Our mission is to set free disadvantaged communities from indifference, lack of knowledge and opportunities.
The Foundation strives to provide an environment conducive to the educational needs of children in collaboration with other community resources. Together, through educational and professional programs, we will work with, and advocate for families to provide a safe, nurturing and permanent home for children.
Making positive the negative that are inflicted on young children is quite possibly the only solution to change our world and to create a bright future. La Familia Movements was founded on the premise that the lives of all children have equal value. The lives of children in the parish of St. James, Jamaica are just as precious as the lives of children in other parts of the world. The Foundation’s goal is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to lead a healthy, positive and productive life. To achieve this goal we believe that having a strong and positive family structure is one of the most important ingredients.
The projects that La Familia Movements Foundation has created are developed so that each citizen is able to reach their maximum potential for personal growth, and to realize their dreams in a healthy environment. To the extent that a child’s social needs are met, that child is likely to develop into a healthy, confident, responsible, productive, competent and independent adult.
Community Building Blocks
The goal is to promote community service and leadership through social and/or athletic experiences via cross-cultural exchange. Volunteers from St James & beyond ranging in age from fourteen years to adults gather in community and engage in community projects with the residents. These powerful activities will set the foundation to provide a safe, nurturing and healthy environment for children and young adults. Children are our most valuable natural resource. In partnership, we hold the key to their success and intend to benefit the youth of Jamaica.

Our LFM Humanitarian Award recipient James "Jimmy Cliff" Chambers. You are a wonderful human being and we love you. Much blessings to Irie FM for organizing such a wonderful event in our loving Somerton, St James community. Thank you to all the beautiful humans who took a journey into Somerton, St James to honor Mr. Chambers. The guest list was breathe taking and we cherish your precious time. One of the most important lessons Mr. Chambers taught us as children is that where there is love there is life. We shall never forget that lesson and we shall continue teaching our children that lessons until the end of time. Thank you Jimmy!
