Since 2008, JBF Fort Worth has teamed up with Fort Worth Metro and it has been a great partnership! Fort Worth Metro is a faith-based non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1999. Their mission is to reach people in the inner-city and equip them to bring positive change in their communities. They go into high crime, low income areas in Fort Worth and work with anywhere between 1,000 and 1,500 children on a weekly basis, meeting social, physical, and spirtual needs through their program.
Fort Worth Metro's primary means of reaching out is through the use of their sound truck - a converted moving truck that turns into a sound stage. Their weekly programs consist of games, prizes, giveaways, and weekly challenges to the kids. They share their beliefs in Christ while encouraging these kids to live right lives, making good choices and making a difference in their community. They provide clothing, groceries, school shoes, school supplies and much more. Their biggest events are Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Summer Camp where they take 300-400 kids to Maypearl, Texas for a weekend camp.
