J R Brothers mission is to make possible new futures for children and youth through mentoring and value driven programs. It is our goal to assist youth at-risk, to develop a positive self-image, and to develop opportunities for the whole person (spiritual, mental, physical, and social).
J R Brothers was founded in 1987 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2001. The organization has reached thousands of youth through several programs over the last twenty-six years. We have served in 38 states and Mexico with programs in 72 Texas cities. All funding has come from individuals, churches, and small businesses with whom we have been associated.
