Dorothy Richards

RD Founder / CEO

Jamaica is an island in the Caribbean Sea, an island full of coconut and green banana trees, an island floating in the breeze. Jamaica is its name. This is the island in which Dorothy Richards was born. THe island produced many sons and daughters who locally served in their own communities as well as overseas. Dorothy served overseas. After graduating from Andrew’s University and New York hospital respectively in the field of nutrition, she worked as a community Nutritionist for the Brooklyn Jewish Hospital. There she was given the opportunity to work in many healthcare facilities, and thus the love for community involvement was born. She moved to Florida in 1978 as nutrition program Director for the Seminole County Health Department. This position involved community activities at its highest level. Schools, churches, nursing homes and other agencies required her expertise in healthy living and good nutrition. During her tenure there in 1982 she received the Seminole County commissioner’s award for outstanding work in the community and health department. After retiring from Seminole county health department in 1998 she focused her attention on her church’s community activities. This involved visiting homes, studying with the young people and educating them about the importance of lifestyle changes. In the year 2000 she was instrumental in working with adults, young people and children relative to their spiritual walk with their creator and 39 persons were baptized in the fellowship of the North Orlando church. She has continued to worked diligently in both the church and the community from 2004 – 2008. Dorothy started her work in the Winter Garden area in 2005 when she along with a group of church pioneers planted a church there. The area is still being worked and hoping for a full harvest. In the year 2009 she and a volunteer visited a community center in Winter Garden and asked if there was anything they could do for the community. The director was amazed at such a question and said her first priority was the need for 10 days of prayer and fasting for the community.
