The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2018 by Taraji P. Henson and led by Executive Director, Tracie Jade Jenkins. The foundation is named in honor of Ms. Henson’s father, Boris Lawrence Henson, who suffered with mental health challenges as a result of his tour of duty in the Vietnam War. We are committed to changing the perception of mental illness in the African American community by encouraging those who suffer with this debilitating illness to get the help they need.

We require a highly resourceful, emotionally intelligent, detail-oriented, and self-motivated individual with a combination of focus and flexibility. Our positions are for individuals passionate about operations, strategy, and team culture with an ability to bring ideas to fruition based on BLHF’s mission and vision.
