Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation:

The Foundation was named in honor and memory of Jennifer Claire Moore, a 16-year-old high school student who lost her life to suicide in 1997. Jennifer’s family wanted to enable all young people to have access to assistance, understanding, and positive reinforcement when they needed it. In the hope that something good could develop from the tragic circumstances of her passing, her family founded the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation in 1998. The Foundation now provides Youth Mental Health First Aid training to adults working with adolescents as well as provides an at-risk prevention and peer support program, Peer Helpers PLUS, to 53 schools equipping nearly 37,000 students with coping and life skills.
