An excerpt from founder, @realjayhill upcoming book... 📖“Sometimes, you just have to simply trust your gut even when others may think you’re crazy. You have to be willing to put yourself OUT THERE, even if you fail —even if you wind up being wrong— because you know in your heart that it’s right for YOU.
Take action and do you.” -Jay Hill
Young warriors!! Sev and Don have been working on setting up an event to attend as a reward for those with great grades. We will be doing a mid year progress report with your parents and will need grades from your teachers to see who will be eligible to attend. We are only taking the 12 best academic scholars so if you are a little behind, let this encourage you to get those grades up. Event:USCvsCal November 10th, time to be determined. #YoungWarriors #FatherlessNomore #ProgressReports #WorkHardPlayHard #USC #SC #SoCal

Imagine this, a dorky, poor, twitching, traumatized little boy from Ohio in a drug addicted and abusive broken home with no daddy who was made fun of for everything cause he was so mentally jacked up.
Repeated the 9th grade twice. Repeated the 10th grade twice. Hit puberty at 16, 5’7” at 120lbs. He ends up growing into a big ole 6’2” 225lb decent looking guy but he was a violent, mean and angry man on drugs and alcohol daily and in and out of jail. Sadly, this real jerk of a man breaks many women’s hearts, gets his shattered in return. His friends are either killing themselves or O.D.’ing. He’s living in a motel cause his mom’s house somehow got burned down.
THEN, one day he just can’t take it anymore, so instead of calling it quits on life he jumps on a Greyhound bus by himself with a duffel bag of clothes, very little money and heads to Los Angeles cause he heard his real father may live there and he can become some kind of hero, so he thinks. Suddenly he goes from a poor uneducated kid to having-raising his only daughter with an amazing women who’s not even the mom, making a ton of money in sales but decides to give it all up for something he believes will help others like he was as a young boy and it starts going well, like really well even his childhood hero’s jump onboard to help his dream, but just then when he thinks he’s got it all figured out and his biggest challenges are now behind him, then wham!
His baby sister dies from a heroine overdose. A year later, he’s assaulted and suffers a severe brain injury among other things and he almost dies as well, in fact the Dr’s tell his family and friends “we don’t know if he will survive”. He does survive. For the next year he doesn’t think he’ll make it through the long recovery process but his friends help him get through the toughest parts and he recovers better than the Dr.s thought he would and he went on to help even more people in other city’s?
IMAGINE IF THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!?
We Can, that’s the life story of our founder, Jason @realjayhill 😩🙏🙌
What’s your story? Imagine if God‘s plans were bigger than your circumstances or your past!? #FatherlessNoMore
