Jackie's Story

Jackie Evans, a resilient mother of five and an integral part of her community, draws her strength from a journey marked by challenges and transformative experiences. The genesis of Voices of Impact can be traced back to a pivotal moment in Jackie's life when her father, her pillar of support, suffered a life-altering stroke, rendering him permanently disabled. At the tender age of 12, Jackie found herself transitioning from "daddy's little girl" to becoming her father's primary caregiver.

Through four core programs and services—Your Special Day, Bridge 2 Hope, Voices of Impact Teen Leadership Academy, and Impactful Produce Deliveries —She and the Voices of Impact team have positively impacted the lives of a multitude of families in the Watts and South Los Angeles are who share the common experience of having a guardian with a disability by turning her pain into purpose.
