You can partner with the JOI Foundation Fund to make a difference in North Florida communities

The Jacksonville Orthopedic Institute Foundation has actively partnered with local outreach organizations here in North Florida, including the Sulzbacher Center for the Homeless, the Patrick Heinold Foundation, the Humane Society and the Police Athletic League.

The JOI Foundation is proud to announce our new relationship with Calais Campbell of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Calais and The Charles Richard Campbell Foundation have partnered with JaxPAL, The JOI Foundation, and Northeast Florida Regional STEM2 Hub to hold a football camp for the local youth community.  To learn more about the football camp, click here.

When you join with us, you make a difference in our community and help to improve the overall well being of thousands of individuals in the North Florida area. The JOI Foundation’s goal is to assist others with the help of generous financial donors & through countless volunteer hours.  We choose these charities because we believe that we can make a positive impact and to make a meaningful change.  100% of funds are used to provide support for outreach programs which benefit individuals and groups in need of services, equipment, supplies, athletics and basic daily necessities such as food and clothing.

JOI employees through our foundation, pay for meals at the Sulzbacher Center.  Employees also volunteer their time to go over to the center and actually prepare and cook the meal.  JOI Physicians and Staff members also volunteer at the Hearts to Soles Event at the Sulzbacher Center on  November 23, 2019.  JOI will be collecting socks to provide them with the shoes which are donated for this event.

The JOI Foundation recently added the Patrick Heinold Foundation as one of our beneficiaries.  Teen suicide is on the rise across the nation.  The data appeared in The Journal of Pediatrics, and comes from poison control centers. A study finds the rate of poisoning attempts more than doubled among boys and girls.

There is no single cause to suicide. It most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition.

JUST 1 is a program that our JOI Certified Athletic Trainers developed at our local  high schools to try to save or help JUST 1 young adult from taking their own life.  Our trainers provide first aid on a daily basis, now they can also provide mental health first aid to these same students.
