Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy." Psalm 82:3 (KJV)

The Full Story

Inspired by true events, Barren was written to bring awareness to the plight of missing black women and also demonstrate the power of fertility. Society teaches young women to suppress their womb when in reality there is nothing more powerful than a woman's womb; it is a portal from darkness to life.


Her passion for changing the narrative on fertility led JJ to her charity of choice called Helping Mamas an organization dedicated to providing goods and services to pregnant mothers.

Helping Mamas was founded by Jamie Lackey out of her garage. Collecting baby supplies from friends and family members and then distributing them to social workers serving women and children. By 2018, Helping Mamas had grown into a 9,000 square foot building where we operate today.

Serving nearly 60,000 children a year and distributing 2 million essential items to the community. Helping Mamas has grown to fight diaper need and period poverty throughout the state of Georgia and in Knoxville, TN.
