Mission Statement

I began this foundation because I found the horrid filled path my son Tommy Jones lead me through to be a very lonely, frightening and deadly experience. At the time, there was little information and help available for me in how to help my son deal with a terrible opiate addiction. Consequently, my purpose here is to help others by alerting them to the severe dangers of substance abuse. In addition, there are myriad governmental, school, community and business changes we could make that would help dramatically improve the manner in which we attack substance abuse.

Program 1

Currently, I have a website at www.tommyjones.org that gives a darn good overview of the substance abuse problems we face. I advocate for the community on behalf of substance abuse issues. I am funding substance abuse programs that I feel are urgently needed yet woefully underfunded. We will make a difference though it's unfortunately to late to help my son Tommy Jones who died on Sept 14, 1997 of a heroin overdose.
