In 2007, Justin co-founded CARE for AIDS as a junior at Vanderbilt University. Despite being a full-time college student, he raised over $250,000 to open and operate four centers in Kenya for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. He became the Executive Director in September 2009 and has since helped the organization grow to 15 centers, 44 employees, and over 3,000 families served. Justin received a Bachelor of Science from Vanderbilt University in Economics and Human and Organizational Development. Justin and his wife of three years, Lindsay, live in Atlanta, Georgia. They are active members of Buckhead Church.
CARE for AIDS works to mobilize the church in caring for families affected by HIV/AIDS in Kenya. Through the process of a nine-month program, each of our 23 centers serves 80 clients at a time, empowering them physically, spiritually, economically, socially, and emotionally. We know that it is every parent’s dream to raise and educate their children, and we empower clients to do just that. After graduating from the CARE for AIDS program, clients will live an extra 20-25 years. This means, despite their HIV status, they will live to raise their children and even see their grandchildren. We call it orphan prevention.
