A Bit of Background
Here at Debourah's House, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
Debourah's House was founded in 2016 with a simple goal; support in any manner needed, our fellow neighbors. Judaline, our founder, from a very young age felt the crying out of her neighbors. She would with support from her mother gather food, clothes and any other items needed to help. What started out as a couple cans here and there turned into an entire street getting together once a week to feed the homeless and elderly.
Many years later, Judaline became a foster mother to children through the state as well as just on her own accord. She would concentrate her efforts on any child that had been deemed too difficult, challenged or unwanted. To date she has fostered over 100 children all prospering in society with their own children and families. That is all she ever considered as a job well done in her mind.
Judaline, to date, is the sole funder for her vision. With the assistance of but a few who donate their time and efforts, she alone keeps her vision alive. It's time to change that and that's where every one of us can help and step in too make a change.
Debourah's House is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. We work on many exciting projects to help improve the lives of others, and are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.

Judaline Dellimore-Vansant, better known to many as Gramma, Ma, sometimes Auntie, has touched so many lives in so many years. If angels line amoungst us, then I do believe she is one of them. From the moment she walks into a room you feel her kind and compassionate spirit. But by now means would anyone dare take it for a weakness because when it comes to wellbeing of her community's youth, any one who can't do for themselves, or under privekedged or battered she is as fearless as a lioness. Her presence commands the room in a gentle and wise manner that even the most astute will stand at attention when she speaks her wisdom, hope and dreams for tomorrow.
And that is why as I humbly put these words together in her honor I finally see a brighter future with a clear and concise yet tangible goal. She has confronted the issue of rehabilitation for prisoners by helping them become productive members of our community. She has adopted families over the years for the holidays ensuring they too will have as much joy brought in to their homes as her family. She has fostered children who started out as impossible, challenged or mentally unstable and reared them into young adults enjoying their own families and traditions taught to her as a young girl.
People naturally gravitate to her helping her feed hungry neighbors from her own kitchen to it becoming such a large venture it became a food bank thats one of.a Kind. Some have even been fortunate to hear her words of wisdom when she was the assistant pastor. I can only imagine her words resonating in each and every ear. Words of peace, happiness, gratitude and hope
She has many end goals that including myself would like to see happen in our lifetime. Some of them include:
. • community center one of it's kind teaching...
. °Gardening, farm to table habits to our youth.
. °better cooking habits, healthy lifestyle choices
• For-profit store fronts supporting non-profit programs
•Food truck that teaches life skills to our youth helping them be ready for life issues.
• Programs helping anyone with challenges such as autism teaching empowerment to succeed in society
You will always see Judaline planning another Family FunDay, feeding the homeless, adopting a family in need for the holidays or mentoring troubled youth. She is the inspiration for each and everyone of us to do better, be better but most of all HELP MORE!
