"The JB" Project
Joanna Beauzier (22 years old), was a Brooklyn raised former  foster child that was the first case of Founder Melody J.Centeno during her time as a Case Planner with Saint Vincent's Services over eight years ago. After an altercation with a young lady On September 13, 2016,  Joanna was stabbed multiple times in front of her nine month old child in the Brownsville section Brooklyn, NY.  Through the advocates of the Foster Care Unplugged community, they have responded to Joanna's tragic death through a public service announcement on conflict resolution.  This PSA is currently being shown at various"Pop Up" Women's empowerment events targeting girls in foster care, group home and juvenile non/secure program settings.   The event begins with advocates donating their time pampering 20 youth through hair, nails and make up to empower them, in order to break the " healthy communication" ice. Working with youth who knew her, or who have experienced similar situations with conflict, a panel discussion is then held. The Garden of Eden Foundation (501(c)3), and the Jessica Marti Experience, are a few among many partners apart of this amazing initiative.   In honor of the life of  Joanna Beauzier please take a moment to watch the PSA below:
