The Divine Intervention & Prevention also know as (DIP) an outreach ministry for the prevention of domestic violence/abuse & hunger who has helped over 2,500 families in need is hosting the II Annual Tools 4 School Supply & Clothing Giveaway to lend a helping hand to students ages 4-18 that are in need. The event will be held at D.I.P. Outreach 2078 Cassat Ave Jacksonville, FL 32210 on Saturday August 4th @ 10am.
The average cost for back to school supplies and clothing is approximately $1500 according to NBC news, that is just as much as the average mortgage payment for many individuals. According to NCCP.org children make up 34 percent of people in poverty. Most low- income families have to look to the government for assistance, food, clothing, and other necessities such as; hygiene items and school supplies that are needed for children; many times this issue is not addressed on a regular basis or plaintively at all. No child wants to go to school without the proper clothing, shoes, or school supplies. The less fortunate seem to be one of the first to be bullied as a result of this particular lack. The community can support Tools 4 School Jax by donating gently used clothing, shoes, handbags, backpacks, costume jewelry, personal care items, new socks, & underwear, for all ages. For a detailed list visit www.facebook.com/diprestores or call (904) 438-4347.

According to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends almost $700 on children’s clothing, electronics, and back to school supplies each year. Back to school time can be a burden on many low income families- especially to those who have to provide clothing for more than one child. Wouldn’t it be great if back to school shopping was easy and cheap? Of course it would.
The recent budget cuts in education tends to take a big toll in the classroom, not only are there more students cramming into already crowded classes, there are fewer supplies to go around. With limited supplies available some teachers and other parents end up spending their own money to buy pencils, pens, notebooks, and textbooks for students whose families can’t afford them.
The Divine Intervention & Prevention Foundation also know as (D.I.P.) is 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 is seeking donations to help kids ages 5-17 gear up for school.
(D.I.P.) has helped over 1,500 families through the Healing Hearts Jax that has lead to the organization’s program expansion and the kickoff of the #Tools4SchoolJax clothing & school supply giveaway to be held on Saturday August 5 at 10am.

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.

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.

On Tuesday June 30, D.I.P. Foundation & Shofar Magazine hosted its inaugural Youth Empowerment and Crime Prevention Fundraiser at the Holiday Hill Baptist Church. Community members gathered to hear powerful messages from P.K. Mickens – (D.I.P.) Executive Director; Steven Bradley of the National Coalition against Domestic Violence; and Florida’s District State Attorney Angela B. Corey. WJXT Channel 4 News was onsite awaiting her arrival, Corey interviewed with the news station outside. Inside was a room full of supporters waiting to hear Corey’s message to youth, and more importantly to take photos with the victim’s safety ambassador.
The event culminated with an overview of (D.I.P.) upcoming projects, the commencement date of (D.I.P.) twenty-six week Batter’s Intervention Program Road to Resilience, and presentation from P.K. Mickens on “The importance of Character” followed by (NCADV) Steven Bradley tips for social media safety. There were several surprises that night; Shofar Magazine unveiled its Blazing Summer Edition Cover, a triple feature to include: Florida’s State Attorney Angela B. Corey, National Recording Artist Jekalyn Carr, Pastor of The Sanctuary of Orange County and Oxygen’s T.V. reality star Jay Haizip. Visit www.Shofarmagazine.com to view cover or subscribe to the magazine.
Select honorees received awards for their support of the organization’s mission of violence prevention: Sam’s Club, Channel 4 News, Pastor Albert Byrd, and Angela B. Corey. With an audience filled with community leaders and supporters the speakers provided valuable insight on internet safety, violence prevention, and character building. Both youth and adults left with violence prevention materials and (D.I.P.) signature hand towels as a reminder of the events theme “Your Knowledge is Your Power.” (D.I.P) hopes to host more empowerment events in the near future to continue raising awareness and funds to fight against domestic violence.
