Turning Passion Into Action

Jace Waters lost his life to an heroin overdose May 2, 2016. He struggled with an opioid addiction for 12 years. His use of drugs began in his senior year of high school with a sport injury to his back. Jace went to college but had to drop out his Junior year due to his drug use. He struggled with jobs, relationships, and his own feelings of failure. Jace was arrested several times and entered several treatment centers to help with his addiction. In one of the treatment centers, Jace turned his life back over to Jesus and said that freedom is only found in God. Jace shared his trust in God with others in jail and rehabs. He shared that he wanted to help others with addiction by establishing recovery homes and sharing his story of hope. The Foundation is determined to do just that.

 

Here at Jace Waters Foundation, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since establishing this 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2017, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways. Our Hub City Classic 5k/10k Run has been a huge success. Our community has been so generous and we doubled our goal. We are excited to have the Hub City Classic as an annual event to raise awareness and help reach our goals. 

The Foundation is also reaching out to scholarship those who've completed a recovery program into transitional living houses in our area. Having a transitional living house in Baldwin County is the Foundation's ultimate goal.

We are making strides in that direction.   We are turning our passion into action!
