Meet Our Board



Co-Founder, President

Javon is a Bronx native who intimately understands the impact of incarceration on children and families. Growing up in a New York City Housing Authority residence, raised by her grandparents in the Northeast section of the Bronx, Javon witnessed firsthand the emotional and social challenges faced by kinship households with an incarcerated parent. Surrounded by the drug epidemic and the HIV/AIDS crisis in NYC, she learned early on that a strong support network extends beyond the home, encompassing neighbors, grocery store clerks, crossing guards, and school teachers.


Driven by a passion to break the cycle of generational poverty and incarceration, Javon has dedicated her career to organizations and systems that address these pressing issues. She holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Criminal Justice and a Masters of Public Administration (MPA) from CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

With over 18 years of nonprofit experience, Javon has worked in various organizations serving populations such as the infectious disease-affected, mentally ill, chemically dependent, at-risk youth, children and families, and LGBTQ+ individuals in NYC, Westchester, and Long Island.

Javon also founded and owns, Outside-In Consulting, a management consulting business specializing in organizational development for nonprofit organizations and leadership professionals.
