Donations of these items are now being collected and can be dropped off to DIP Outreach & Thiftique located  2078 Cassat Avenue Jacksonville, FL or by making a donation online at www.Dipfoundation.org Corporate and individual sponsors are welcome to support this cause.

Community Violence Awareness Event & Balloon Release -Good Friday

Posted on March 26, 2018 at 3:21 PM Comments comments ()
Violence continues to escalate in our cities and nation, unfortunately there seems to be a massive separation in our communities between those who are focusing on solutions to empower those who are mourning and those who are blaming each other, societal issues, and legislation for allowing violent tragedies to occur. Meanwhile, parents and family members who have lost a loved one are looking for ways to cope and mend their shattered hearts. What if our focus was shifted from accusing our fellows to bridging the “blaming gap” with Love? Dr. Martin Luther King boldly proclaimed, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” We need the power of love now more than ever.
Jacksonville in particular has lost several winsome and talented children to gun and domestic violence, Connor Mickens is one of those children. Although it has been five months since he was shot in the head the pain still lingers; blaming those who should have, or could have done this or that will not bring precious Connor back. Our factions can no longer play the “blame game,” therefore we ought to refocus and eradicate brute force through unceasing violence prevention themes, prayer, community outreach events, and advocacy. Our core objective as a community should be to stand united in love. There are three ways dignitaries and community proponents can encourage those who are still grieving: through common acts of love, kindness, and commitment to raise awareness about perpetrators who use violence as a panacea; that is destroying communities filled with innocent children who have been shot, killed, beaten and raped to death.
On Good Friday March 30th, at 12PM  D.I.P. Outreach Ministry is inviting community members, leaders, and media outlets to the balloon release ceremony in memory Connor Mickens and other youth in our city who have loss their life to barbarity. Afterwards kids will be served lunch and can participate in Easter activities such as egg decorating and hula hoop contest, games, raffles, face painting, and story time. RSVP  The goal of this event is to raise awareness and funds to continue the organization's mission of  violence prevention and to pray as a community. Food and drinks will be available for donations.
About D.I.P. Foundation Outreach is a non for profit organization that educates Children, families, and  communities on domestic prevention. DIP also provides food, clothing, and other necessities to impoverished and abused children and families. The organization has helped over 2500 families through their Heal A Heart Outreach. For more information visit www.Dipfoundation.org  or call (904) 438-4347 Donations and Volunteers are welcome. Event will be held at  DIP Outreach & Donation Center  2078 Cassat Ave. Jacksonville, FL 32210 ( between Blanding & San Juan)

4th Annual Food, Clothing, & Toy Drive looks to Feed Four Hundred Families

Posted on November 16, 2016 at 9:16 AM Comments comments ()

Everyday Life can have its way of blindsiding us with the latest uploads on Instagram, Facebook live notifications, and snapchat stories about the VMA’s red carpet slayage, and the never-ending antics of the Kardashians on TMZ.  Meanwhile we give little or no attention to the less fortunate children and families in our communities that suffer from hunger and abuse.  

The Divine Intervention & Prevention Foundation aka (D.I.P.) a non-profit organization whose core objective is to educate and empower families to live healthy, holistic lives without the use of violence as a recourse to solve relationship, personal, and financial plights. (D.I.P.) has helped over 1,000 families in their time of need through the Healing Hearts outreach ministry. This annual outreach was designed to help families with their bare living necessities such as food, clothing, blankets, coats, shoes, personal hygiene -toiletries, and toys for children during the holiday season. To learn more about the organization, visit www.Dipfoundation.org or call 904 438-4347.

I am very excited to get this going for the children and families that will benefit says, executive director of the D.I.P. Foundation P.K. Mickens – “what a wonderful way to honor the spirit of the holidays by giving huge smiles to those who are hurting, hungry, in need of personal hygiene, shoes, and clothing. This year’s donations will go a long way in helping over four families experiencing homelessness and poverty in Jacksonville, Florida metro area. It is truly more blessed for us to give than to receive” she says.

There are several ways that you can help DIP with its mission now through December 20become an Advocate: volunteer, organize a corporate or group benefit drive. Food, media, and financial sponsors are welcomed. Donation Drop-Sites are needed.

Pledge / Donate: Donations of non-perishable foods, personal hygiene & house household items, new & gently used toys are now being collected and can be dropped off to one of the donation drop sites.

D.I.P. Outreach Ministry weekly community empowerment

Posted on July 20, 2015 at 2:39 PM Comments comments ()

Empowerment Tuesdays is a weekly inspirational, experiential, educational meeting for the community all ages. It gives attendees an opportunity to worship, fellowship, evaluate themselves based on the message that given.  D.I.P. is an educational Outreach ministry for the prevention of domestic violence, our messages for the empowerment series are bible based and point out how everyone is subject to becoming an abuser or being abused. D.I.P. believes that divine healing takes place when we get to the root that is causing the fruit of bad behavior. This is not a traditional meeting about domestic violence and abuse simply because those who are abusing or being abused would not attend unless they were court ordered. However, the power of the Holy Spirit has and will continue to convict attendees to see that there is a problem and Jesus is the only One to solve it.
 We simply have to meet people where they are to disciple them through the word of God so they may apply it in every aspect of their life.
