CeJay Cares

About Us

The organization was birthed out of the community work of Charles Edward Johnson (CEJAY) back in 2008. Thousands listen to him on the radio and do business with his company. Through that work, he learns about various needs within the community. This nonprofit organization allows him to respond to needs through multiple programs for women and children and create partnerships to strengthen the community.

His work #CEJAYCARES has centered around empowering people and equipping them with the necessary resources to accomplish their goals in life. 

Today, #CEJAYCARES continue to change lives by helping people believe so they may achieve. We are a 501 (c) 3 organization within Northwest Louisiana. Our partnerships strengthen our programs with local churches, businesses, civic organizations, and government agencies. 

We aim to connect people to information and resources to help them advance.

#CommUNITY365 Program

After the killings of Black Men and Women in America sprung out countless Black Lives Matter protest throughout the country. That brought up serious conversations regarding race relations in Northwest Louisiana. Because of that, we organized faith leaders, their congregations, and other community organizations together to help mobilize reconciliation within our community through building wholesome relationships, dialogue, and community service. 

CommUNITY365 Program is designed to bring people together beyond race, age, gender, and beliefs to work together to serve the community.
