The Leon Washington Foundation’s mission is to assist low-income Jacksonville families with education, sports, and life skills. It is the goal of the Leon Washington Foundation to provide programs that will enlighten, inspire, and educate underprivileged youths to live stronger, healthier, and more productive lives.
Research has shown that often when families don’t have both parents in the home or when proper family guidance is not displayed; untapped potential in a child can go on without ever being developed. From Leon Washington’s own struggles while being raised in Jacksonville, FL, Leon saw himself as one of those children that could have been left behind and never given the opportunities that God has blessed him with.
Out of his hardships and tough times, the vision of the Leon Washington Foundation was clear; to provide help and encourage so that other young people and their families can have a brighter future.
