DESTINY WATKINS-MACHWAYA

CEO/Founder, Secretary, Treasurer

This organization was founded in loving memory of my brother, Jesse, who recently died at 24 years old. Jesse and I grew up together and we were very close. Together we endured some very rough circumstances including chronic homelessness, hunger, poverty, and many other challenging circumstances. Feed the Heart is truly a legacy that I wanted to set up in his honor to live on in his memory.  
I feel like maybe if a program like this had existed before, his life might have been so different, and maybe it could have even saved his life. I hope it can save someone else's "Jesse". I will forever miss mine.
I have worked and volunteered at many nonprofit organizations in the past and present including; Habitat for Humanity, ALEA Bridge, HCAP, and others. I have also worked as a teacher here in our local island community. I have a passion for working in my community to improve the lives of those most in need. I think we all have the potential for kindness if our basic needs are met first.
