Remembering and Honoring Mrs. Janice Mitchell
In Remembrance of Mrs. Janice Mitchell, a visionary, family advocate, and a phenomenal woman
With heavy hearts, DREAAM joins our community in celebrating the life and legacy of Janice Mitchell. Many of our staff worked with Mrs. Mitchell, as she was an incredibly kind, encouraging, and ever optimistic leader and mentor to us. Mrs. Mitchell devoted her time, talents, and treasures to Urbana youth and their families, always encouraging them (and everyone) to achieve their highest potential and contribute to build a better community. She also provided guidance and support to many local organizations, but especially put her mark on the community through her visionary work with Urbana Neighborhood Connections Center, which she founded in 2010.
Mrs. Mitchell put her whole heart into her work and our community. What a blessing she was to all she came across!
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Mitchell's family, friends, and UNCC staff and families. She will be deeply missed by all of us at DREAAM. May we all carry on her legacy and spread hope and healing to our communities.
