Founded in October, 2004, Jaden's Ladder is a non-profit organization that assists survivors of domestic violence with life-enhancing, post shelter programs and support that build confidence and foster self-reliance. We work with area shelters to provide post-shelter care and guidance to ensure that survivors are empowered to take back their lives and become active and vital members of the community.
Our Name The name "Jaden's Ladder" was selected for two reasons. First, Jaden means "God has heard". We believe the name "Jaden" highlights our commitment to mankind, helping those in need in times of trouble. The word "ladder" represents climbing to new heights and reaching one's goals, in this case, breaking the cycle of domestic violence, becoming an active member of the community and reaching new personal milestones.
Our Founders The domestic violence cause is something that is very close to the heart of each of the Jaden's Ladder Founders: Oneta Bobbett, Jon Bobbett, and Kristi Bartlett. Each of the Founders has dedicated themselves to the cause, amassing decades of community service experience.
Today, it is each of the Founders' mission, along with all of the committee members and volunteers at Jaden's Ladder, to help domestic violence survivors become stronger and make life-enhancing choices and changes that promote happiness and well-being.
