What is The Joy Network?

We are a sweet to the soul, healing to the bones, community!

As a 501c3 organization, The Joy Network aims to be a place where you find, well, Joy! As a faith-based organization, we hope to fulfill Proverbs 16:24 – “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”

Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.

Unless you have family who visits often, an elder care community can be a lonely place to reside. The Letters to Grandma Project connects students with seniors through card and craft donations during the holidays and all year long.

Our programs make a difference, one word at a time.

Young Writer's Workshop

At our young writer’s workshop, we equip students with the necessary skills to bring joy to others through the written word.

Agenda 119

In many places around the world, 119 is the emergency call number. These days, cyberbullying has placed our communities in a state of emergency, especially in our schools. By using the ideology behind James 1:19, Agenda 119 teaches students to be “quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.”

Around the World!

What was once a favorite past time has been reduced to “lols” and “ikrs.” Kids these days are missing out on the joy of snail mail. So at The Joy Network, we hope to encourage cross cultural interaction through pen pals around the world.

The Letters to Grandma Project

Grandmothers and roses are much the same. Each are God's masterpieces with different names.

I am a facility

Senior care facilities are some of the loneliest places for people to live. Unless they have a family willing to take the time to visit, residents are left without encouragement for days and weeks on end. We aim to change that. Through the LTGP, we ensure residents receive encouraging cards during the loneliest time of year. If you are a senior care facility who would like to encourage your residents, contact us below to find out how you can become a part of the Letters to Grandma Project.

I am a school

Kids say some of the funniest things. Their humor is just what the doctor ordered for seniors in need of a good laugh and positive encouragement. If you’re a school who is interested in having your students participate in our program through writing cards and letters, please contact us below for more information on how you can get involved.

Write For Us

You’re not a facility and you’re not a school, but you would love to send a letter or words of encouragement to someone in a senior care facility. Use our contact form below to reach out to us and we will send you the information on how you can get involved!
