The Dock Ellis Foundation was launched in February 2009 by Dock's Wife Hjordis Ellis and Daughter Jasmine Lee. In 2018 The Dock Ellis Foundation received 501 (C) 3 status. Jasmine Lee has been working as an Advocate for the black community for over 10 years. Jasmine has been a beacon for the community managing Shelters and Safe Houses in California and Nevada. Hjordis Ellis has over 30 years clean and sober and currently travels speaking at Narcotics Anonymous groups sharing her experience strength and hope to other recovering addicts. While working in the community Dock Ellis Foundation was called upon by a struggling mother whose daughter was reported missing, after many weeks of helping the family locate their daughter sadly she was found deceased in a hotel. This unfortunate situation fueled the need to want to help families of missing children. Together the Ellis family built a team of advocates and decided to dedicated The Dock Ellis Foundation to Victims of crime and Missing Children.
Foundation is dedicated to educating Minority Men and Women between the ages of 13-65 about Racial issues, Sex Trafficking and Domestic Violence within the black community. The Dock Ellis Foundation helps promote prevention efforts while creating and strengthening community partnerships. While we focus on giving back to the less fortunate communities our services are available to all Victims. Our services will not be denied – because of gender, age, race, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation, disability or anything else.
To provide strong and solid assistance to minorities families have experienced injustice and they are forced to navigate through the system during one of the most tragic times in their lives and to provide a voice for the voiceless.
