About Our Grant Recipients
ReEntry Family Services is a small nonprofit that began serving Johnston County families in 1998. They serve 60 families a week, providing a minimum of 90 minutes of service for programs such as the Family Pride parenting program, HALT domestic violence prevention program, and the Healthy Choices youth program. ReEntry is looking to add to their list of programs by adding the TND Project “Toward No Drugs”. TND is a substance abuse program for teens that focuses on character building and providing life skills, while lessening substance abuse, deterring interaction with the court system and helping them succeed in school. It is ReEntry’s hope that teaching our youth these life skills will help them become successful individuals in our community.
In 2019, 12.2% of the people living in Johnston County were food insecure. Currently the projected overall food insecurity rate of Johnston County residents is 13.5%, in part as a result of COVID-19. For these families, children, and elderly neighbors of ours, ‘experiencing Food Insecurity’ means not always having daily meals, or not knowing where their next meal will come from. That is why the Junior Women’s League of Smithfield remains steadfast in its fight to end hunger and positively impact the lives of Johnston County's citizens through our Blessing Box program, small pantries located at fire departments throughout the county that are stocked with free food and personal care items for people in need.
