What is Joy’s G.I.F.T.


Joy’s G.I.F.T. empowers women and youth who are survivors of
sexual abuse or trafficking
We equip them on how to transition from tragedy to triumph with
a HEALTHY mind, HEALED body & HAPPY soul.

Women and youth are provided the support system and infrastructure of
wrap-around resources/services focused on mental, emotional, physical and spiritual healing.
Program participants will go through the program to have
coping skills to recover from trauma and have life skills to
restore their lives for true self-mastery of independence.


Joy’s G.I.F.T. (Joy’s Global Illumination Foundation Thrives) is a 501(c)(3) women & youth empowerment organization founded by Best Selling Author, Speaker and Life Coach April Joy Ford. April became a widow at the age of 32.  The many adversities that April has endured  throughout her entire life such as sexual abuse, helped prepare her to deal with the ultimate tragedy of losing her husband in 2010.  Not only did she lose her husband Lincoln, but he was her best friend and father of their two young children.

April’s passion is dedicated to this global movement to inspire others in overcoming adversity through mental, emotional and spiritual healing.
