With your help, J Positive has donated thousands of dollars to charity!

We are pleased to be able to give back to the wonderful organizations that have played an important role in shaping Joel into the remarkable young man he is today, and who help countless other amazing humans just like him.

All of these institutions do an amazing job of providing a welcoming, challenging, and educational space for individuals with developmental disabilities. They also provide a very special social environment for individuals who very often have limited opportunity for social interactions. They are crucial in providing opportunities for development, a sense of belonging, and pride in one's accomplishments. 

  • BEING studio supports artists with developmental disabilities who are working in visual art and creative writing. Joel has attended BEING for many years which has helped nurture his artistic expression.

  • Camp Misquah provides a wonderful residential camping experience for adults and children with special needs. Joel has attended Camp Misquah since 2011.

  • The Capital City Condors are a family of ice hockey teams for those who are unable to play on any other hockey team due to a cognitive and/or physical disability. Joel has been a proud Condor since 2010.

Thank you for your generous support. 🙏
