WHO WE ARE?
Rajon Rondo Foundation is a non-profit organization that falls under the Fiscal Sponsorship of the Bluegrass Foundation. Our philanthropic roots continue throughout Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, and Louisville.
WHAT DO WE DO
Support and mentor young people by exposing them to the world outside of their immediate surroundings, emphasizing the need for personal accountability and encouraging them to give their very best effort to succeed academically and develop healthy, personal relationships.
Through careful guidance, strategic and intentional supports every young person has a path to realizing and reaching their full potential.
We recognize that violence, addiction, poverty and hopelessness has taken a toll on a lot of families. Family and community challenges have caused kids to lack the emotional, financial and physical support necessary for them to set and reach lofty goals.
We want to encourage youth to challenge themselves both physically and academically to set themselves up for healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives.
Help us set a world record on saving lives by learning more about the signs and risk factors associated with suicide. In recognition of Suicide Prevention Week, help me bring awareness to this public health crisis.
I know that life can be challenging no matter your age, race and financial standing, we all experience rough times in life that can leave some of us feeling hopeless. If you ever experience that feeling-reach out for help. If you notice a friend or loved one that seems detached and depressed reach out for help on their behalf. There are a few easy steps we can all take to prevent suicide: Q- Question, P-Persuade, R- Refer
“There is no shame in needing some help so please reach out because your life matters."
Call the 24/7 National Suicide prevention hotline at 800-273-8255 and talk to someone if you are feeling hopeless at this moment.
