For over 40 years, Friendship Village has offered a complete range of services to seniors including independent living deluxe apartments, assisted living apartments, assisted living memory care units and rehabilitation services.

         The Love Jones Foundation (LJF) was created with the mission to provide the youth and elderly with opportunities to learn, participate, and express themselves through various music programs, education, experience and events.  Through its signature initiative, “The Music Zone”, the LJF will aim to fill a void where school budget cuts have impacted arts/music programming; as well as increase the exposure of music therapy in both the elderly and the youth.

There are many proven benefits to the youth and the elderly through music education and music therapy.  With this in mind, the objectives of the LJF are to give youth exposure, knowledge, and a means of artistic development; to provide the elderly with a feeling of comfort, contentment, and encouragement through fine arts programming; and provide both with a form of therapeutic development through music.

After 30 years, R&B Singer Glenn Jones is still one of the most sought after live performers in the music industry today.  With many chart topping hits, including his signature song, “We’ve Only Just Begun”, and collaborations with industry greats like, Dionne Warwick, Regina Belle, and the Canton Spirituals, he continues to tour. The LJF has been a long time goal for Glenn after seeing the comforting effects of music on his Mom while in hospice care.  “I want to use the universal language of music to make a difference in the lives of our youth and our forgotten seniors…just like it made a difference in my life.”
