”Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

John F. Kennedy


As I developed a clearer sense of the gifted person whose words and wisdom will be shared in this new Series, Toni Jackson, the famous words of Pres. Kennedy (above) and a well-known Bible scripture came to mind.  The scripture:

  • The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16b).

As a Christian prays, to connect with God, a cheerful volunteer donates their time to connect with their community.  Jackson is a proud Christian woman who has generously volunteered throughout her life – to support a wide range of organizations and community causes.

A Housing Specialist for the City of High Point (NC), she has volunteered countless hours – and managed volunteers too.  However, if you look only at Jackson’s paid employment, you’re missing out on a lot of what has allowed the married mother of two to make her mark.

  • During her life she’s volunteered in the areas of housing, financial capability, developmental disabilities advocacy, & public ministry.

A Series on Your Outcomes Well featuring Toni Jackson begins today.

In the biography at the bottom of this Series-launching post, her career, volunteer work, awards, and family are described.

Non-profit Leadership

As we talked with Delquanda Turner in mid-January, the community manager’s passion for engaging the community and families was refreshing and clearly heart-felt.  Her insight into community planning, effective leadership, and non-profit organizations was hard to hide.  As Community Planning Manager for the Juvenile Welfare Board in Central Florida, Turner spoke eloquently on several non-profit and community issues.

The gems the Your Outcomes Well Team gleamed from Turner, during this conversation, are the seeds for our 3rd blog Series – which begins today with this post.
