  • Poverty stricken communities and youth

Statement of Value

The Lolo Jones Foundation seeks to use education as a tool against poverty to encourage others to live a life full of purpose despite hard-ships and/or setbacks

Hurdles of Hope

Hurdles of Hope is the signature program under The Lolo Jones Foundation that seeks to address barriers, and challenges of families with incarcerated loved one's. Through her personal experience and story, Lolo hopes to reach those individuals that are particularly vulnerable to the negative consequences that having an incarcerated loved one may bring. Through the foundation's mission, Lolo will educate and provide resources to individuals to overcome these barriers to inspire hope and change in the community.
