Why We Formed
Jacob's AIM was founded in 2018 as the National Self-esteem Project for Children with Physical Anomalies, when a group of caring individuals joined to establish a nonprofit organization that would offer programs to encourage strong foundations of positive self-awareness in children with disabilities or differences in appearance.
We sought to address the under-served aspects of the emotional and mental well-being of children with disabilities or differences, by creating a practical set of low-cost, yet, effective programs, that can be implemented by volunteers in local communities. These programs would commit to helping those susceptible to having lower self-esteem to be better capable of seeing themselves through a more positive perspective.
We care about the children in our local communities and want to do all we can to ensure that each has an opportunity to thrive, to enjoy being a kid, and to passionately pursue his or her dreams. Our programs are designed to help children who struggle with appearance or ability to realize their value and reach their full potential. We offer these programs to the community at no cost, through partnerships with area schools, businesses, and civic organizations.
The Programs are:
- "Junior eSteemers" School Enrichment Activities
- "I Am Able" Annual Talent Showcase
- "Leia's Light" Sibling Awareness
- School Awareness Assemblies
- Community Awareness Seminars
- Corporate Awareness Workshops
- Referrals to Licensed Counselors
