The Ophelia Foundation honors the lives and memory of Ophelia Comfort Jones and Ophelia Boyce Pinckney. Each of these strong women was the backbone of her family. Neither completed their secondary education, and both succumbed to diabetes.
Honoring Their Legacy
We fight for educational and health causes as a way to bring exposure to issues our mothers and grandmothers battled during their lifetimes. Unfortunately, many of these issues are still relevant today for our community. Both Ophelias would be proud of the establishment of this foundation and its initiatives to advance and empower our communities.
