Welcome To J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares
J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares (Journey to becoming an Extraordinarily, Strong, Successful, Individual with Courageous, Aspirations) is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization founded in 2010. We focus on enriching the lives of Muslim teen girls ranging in ages 13-19. Low self esteem is at the root of many poor decisions and behaviors young ladies manifest in their daily lives. Young Muslimah’s today face difficult challenges like never before due to the negative portrayals of Muslim women in the media; thus causing a negative sense of self worth.
At J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares, we offer unique empowering programs filled with opportunities for Muslim teen girls who are at a crossroad in their lives. The girls participate in powerful life changing workshops, summer empowerment retreats and exercises that foster positive behaviors.
We aim to encourage and support:
- The building of and Maintenance of self esteem
- Strategic Positive Goal Setting
- Creating Responsibility
- Community Accountability
- Critical and Independent Thinking
J.E.S.S.I.C.A. Cares mission is to eradicate the negative thoughts that precede negative behaviors by virtue of “empowering young Muslimah’s, one positive thought at a time.”
