Nonprofit News: A Day Of Fun On The Water For Daniel Foundation

Freedom Boat Club, based at Julington Creek Marina, hosted Daniel Foundation members for a boat ride.

It wasn’t exactly the day they had planned, but the weather allowed a few hours of fun on the water for a group of young adults from the Daniel Foundation.

Freedom Boat Club, based at Julington Creek Marina, worked with Daniel to reward the group of eight young people with a boat trip.

Freedom Boat Club originally planned to take them from Julington Creek Marina to Green Cove Springs and Cunningham Creek, but the weather altered those plans. Instead, the group cruised down Julington Creek and Durbin Creek for a ride to look at nature. The group saw an alligator, birds and scenic waterway homes.

In order to qualify for the program, the young adults must be in school full-time, work a minimum of 20 hours per week and attend groups and therapy, as well as workshops on budgeting and life skills.

Many of the clients aged out of foster care without ever being adopted, some were found homeless and others were separated from their families due to a death.

The Daniel Foundation offers health and social services to help children with emotional, social and behavioral issues.

If you know a charitable group or nonprofit in the Jacksonville area that deserves a day out on the water, contact the Freedom Boat Club at (904) 588-2417.
