Florida Organization of Jamaicans

In 1987, Ms. Norma Bancroft founded the Florida Organization of Jamaicans in Miami, a charitable entity which has provided assistance to the indigent and imprisoned in Jamaica as well as to the disadvantaged Jamaicans in South Florida. In 2007, Ms. Bancroft received the Community Service Award from the Jamaican Consulate in Miami for her “pioneering spirit and perseverance.”

In 1999, the Florida Organization of Jamaicans Scholarship was established at Barry University to assist Jamaican students attending Barry University who have financial need.
