 The power of one

The force of many

The Angels

Volunteers are our lifeblood.  Joi’s Angels could not fulfill its mission without them.  Their efforts support and uplift us.  As a force, they create public value. 


We are blessed with the help and support of approximately 300 adult Angels per year.  


Angels represent every race, creed, religion, political affiliation—you name it.  And we don’t just accept difference, we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of all whom we serve. 


A core group of about 20 volunteers—some who have been with us since the very beginning—show up at almost every event.  They are the MVA's (Most Valuable Angels).  These are two MVA’s: 


Ms. LENA SLAUGHTER:  A ninety-one-year-old retiree, Ms. Lena has been with Joi’s Angels since day one.  She is our touchstone.


Ms. JEAN KNOX:  Ms. Jean has also been a vital asset to Joi’s Angels since it’s early days.  She also has helped us spread our wings by promoting Joi’s Angels to others.  Responsible for many of our linkages with community partners, Ms. Jean is our tireless advocate.


Student Angels complement our adult Angels to complete our army.   On a rotating basis, an average of twenty students per month assist with all aspects of the operation.   They typically complete five hours of service per event.  The Angels are involved in all aspects of inner-city emergency services.
