Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation

Everyone loves this boss woman from Empire, but Taraji P. Henson is now on a mission to removing the stigma around mental health in the African-American community through the laugh of the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, in honor of her late father. 

This organization will not only provide scholarships to African-American students majoring in mental health, but also offering mental health services to the youth in urban schools.

"Through our partnerships, the foundation will ensure cultural competency in caring for African Americans who struggle with mental illness by providing scholarships to African-American students who seek a career in the mental health field; offer mental health services and programs to young people in urban schools; and combat recidivism within the prison system."

Thank you Taraji P. Henson
