What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We believe “With family anything is possible” The J Atterby Fields Foundation, is a family based 501c3 public benefit, in Los Angeles, Ca. Our mission is health, fitness and enrichment, helping families become mentally, physically and financially fit. Changing the way we view fitness is vital to the health of our children, families, and communities. Health disparities have separated our families across the nation. Many are left to find a new family within their community, so together we must address both individual and systemic factors, detrimental to our wellbeing. Being natives to the Crenshaw District, South LA area, we also have experienced the negative impact first hand. We are passionate and remain proactive as we continue to take steps towards keeping families together, against all odds.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization is here to do just that, promoting healthy lifestyles, physical activity for the whole family and addressing social determinants of health such as poverty, housing, and education. It is our human right to have access to programs that meet our needs. We understand that lack of access to employment and income have contributed to stress, poor health and ultimately lead to the death of a loved one affecting our communities as a whole. These health inequities also result in unequal exposure to environmental hazards, such as pollution or unsafe housing, which can increase the risk of chronic diseases and other health problems.

We know all too well that as people of color living in low-income underserved communities we are more likely to experience higher rates of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer, all of which we can prevent with proper healthcare access and preventive measures. We can choose to live. Addressing health disparities requires a multifaceted approach, including increasing access to healthcare services, improving the quality of care, health education, financial literacy, affordable housing, pathways to home ownership, and addressing systemic issues such as racism and discrimination. It is essential to prioritize these efforts to ensure that we all have the opportunity to achieve optimal health and fitness in all aspects.

To address health disparities and reduce preventable deaths, this requires collaboration across multiple sectors, including healthcare, public health, education, housing, and social services. It is important for policymakers, healthcare providers, and communities to work together to identify and address these health challenges advocating for policies and programs that support these goals in order to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

This initiative gave birth to our B.L.U.E project, Building Lives thru Unity and Economics. This community project strives to promote healthy lifestyles, physical activity, and overall wellness, while also addressing social determinants of health such as poverty, housing, and education. This project is committed to creating sustainability and helping families achieve mental, physical, and financial fitness. To fund this project we've planned a number of community health events for 2023.

As a grass root family organization, we understand that partnerships play a key role in reaching our goals. By leveraging resources, we work with organizations that share the same vision to effectively achieve greater impact than we could alone.
We have formed meaningful relationships over the past years and our network continues to grow. Our partners range from city officials to local businesses, and community support, we are more than appreciative for the help we have received thus far in furthering our mission.

Last December we were honored to have been sponsored by The City of Los Angeles Council District 10 Councilwoman Heather Hutt Office. With their support we hosted our annual Winter On Ice Fundraiser, in Leimert Park. This year will be our 3rd annual and LA City District 10 are on board to sponsor us along with a host of local partners we have gained in our work to combat health disparities in the less fortunate areas of the Crenshaw District, and South Los Angeles. The Winter on Ice event started with one day of ice skating in 2021, then expanded to a whole week on the ice last year, with an experience enjoyed by over 4k community members children and families that otherwise would not have had exposure to this activity. In partnership with LAMetro and the new Metro K Train Station in Leimert Park made attendance accessible for many.
With title sponsorship in place we could take this event to the next level, with a REAL ICE experience this year in the historical Leimert Park!
We realize how important it is to create a safe space to bring the members of our communities together. Creating this ice-skating event has helped do just that by bringing family, friends, and fun all together in one place. This simple yet fun activity promotes wellness to an underprivileged/underserved community, lacking access to an environment that exposes options for enrichment and healthy lifestyle choices changing the way we view fitness. The J Atterby Fields Foundation, cares about social justice and equality, and we know that health and fitness through entertainment, can be an impactful way to address these issues.

Leading up to this Winters event, we will host /collaborate:

1. Weekly Food Distributions in Leimert Park
2. KJLH 23rd Annual Women's Health EXPO - June
3. 1st Annual 5K Run Walk Ride - July
4. Youth Day - Health & Wellness Family Reunion - August
5. Family Golf Day "Swinging for a Cause: Tee Up for Charity!" - September
6. Hooping for B.L.U.E.! - Celebrity Basketball Game - October
7. Fall Appreciation Gala - November
