Jada House 5th Anniversary Celebration
Our Story I try to do something different with these kids, because they need to see something different; they need to see something outside of the norm.
—Terri Shields, Executive Director of JADA House International
Born and raised in Hazelwood, Terri Shields has dedicated her life to creating a brighter future for the neighborhood. After a brief run in with the law as a teenager, Terri wanted to change her life for the better and make a difference in her community. However, her path to becoming a social worker was not easy. While in college, Terri also worked multiple jobs while raising three kids and eventually battling Lupus. However, she persisted. After completing her studies, Terri established JADA House International, a faith-based nonprofit that provides a space for people of all ages to discuss their social and spiritual challenges. Together, they eat, share, heal, and learn, as Terri fervently works to improve the wellbeing of her community.
Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders Reception
FSF amplifies the impact of philanthropic and investment communities in support of just and sustainable food and agriculture systems, and the SAFSF Forum is the only national gathering for and by funders supporting just and sustainable food systems change. The Forum challenges participants to understand the need for grantmakers and investors to take on risks in order to co-create more resilient, sustainable, and equitable food systems—and at the same time, provides space to cultivate connections with peers so that no one organization is going it alone. The three-day Forum offers many opportunities for peer learning, networking, and collaboration. Plenary and workshop sessions and themed dinners allow funders to learn from each other as well as leaders in the field. Day-long site visits encourage participants to learn from work happening in the region and identify themes that might inform their own work once they return home. A full funders-only day provides space for deeper-dive peer engagement around topics of interest. And because the Forum theme and agenda is developed by and for funders who are working on a variety of issues, approaches, and geographies, attendees will leave with inspiration, strategies, and connections for impactful engagement related to their own work within the food system.
