We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit with the missions to supporting others through their challenges one smile at a time and one dream at a time. Life may completely turn us upside down and sometimes change our direction, but this doesn't have to cause us to completely give up on our dreams. At RJ Smiles, our mission is to help motivate and encourage individuals one smile at a time.  We know that sometimes a smile can make all of the difference.

The smile that we share started with Richard (RJ) Jackson. Richard was a positive young man who enjoyed making others smile.  He believed that people should focus on living a life that made them and those around them happy.  He believed that the first step in attaining this happiness was going for your dreams.  

His legacy continues through RJ Smiles, Inc. as we work together to create smiles and rebuild dreams.

The Mission

At RJ Smiles, Inc. our dream is to help individuals who have experienced a major loss and are ready to smile again and move forward toward their dreams.

We know that when we help one person achieve their dream, there is a ripple affect which allows them to help others do the same.

Our work is done one on one, with groups and also by collaborating with other businesses and non profit organizations.
