JP JumPers Foundation founder , Pam Mines, is humbled and honored to have been chosen as a 2018 Richmond History Maker in the “Encouraging Regional Collaboration” category. Her initiation of “JP’s Law”, inclusion in the Special Needs Community and overall advocacy is what makes her a 2018 Richmond History Maker. The Valentine posts the following:
“Pam Mines is a philanthropist and the president/founder of the JP JumPers Foundation. The foundation’s vision is to “JumP In” to positively impact the special needs community. Her diligent and proactive efforts to pass “JPs Law” (inspired by her son JP) impacted not only those with autism and intellectual disabilities but also their families, law enforcement and the wider community. Her passion and determination has inspired many to become involved in her effort to remove the stigma from those with special needs.”
