1. This story highlights Jylyn, a person positively impacted by Ujima, an organization dedicated to helping families recover from alcoholism, drug addiction and behavioral health problems. Ujima is partially funded by Tipping Point. Tipping Point commissioned us to create this film for their 2015 benefit where they raised over fourteen million dollars to help fund other organizations like Ujima.

    Today, Jylyn and Varn own a home in Richmond.
    Both of their sons are happy and healthy.
    Jylyn works as a Social Services Program Assistant for a county agency, supporting other women just like her.
    Ujima Family Recovery Services is one of 47 poverty-fighting organizations funded by Tipping Point Community.
