Jeremiah Castille Foundation focuses on mentoring.  Growing up in a dysfunctional home filled with abuse, domestic violence and alcoholism, mentors were the direct result of Jeremiah Castille’s successes in life.  Most notably, the legendary Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant instilled discipline and leadership into Jeremiah’s life.  Coach Bryant taught him that with a positive attitude, a strong work ethic and integrity; he could do great things.  Coach Bryant’s guidance and Jeremiah’s resolve led Jeremiah to numerous successes including, being selected the MVP in Coach Bryant’s last Liberty Bowl game.

For six years, Jeremiah played professional football with Tampa Bay and Denver.  As a member of the Denver Broncos, he played in Super Bowl XXII between the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins.  Throughout his professional career, Jeremiah’s purpose in life became clearer.  His experiences led him to mentor, coach and encourage at-risk youth.  In 1999, he and his wife Jean founded Jeremiah Castille Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The foundation’s mission based on Isaiah 61:1-4 is to preach good tidings to the poor, heal the broken hearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, open prison doors to those who are bound and glorify the Lord through preaching. The foundation’s vision is to invest, influence, impact and inspire lives so they will rebuild and restore generations. “Hope Revealed” to the hopeless is the focus of the programs of Jeremiah Castille Foundation.

The acquisition of property in the Woodlawn community of Birmingham in 2005 began the realization of Jeremiah’s vision to reach inner-city youth one-on-one for Christ.  While funding for the center is pending, upon completion, the center will become home base for Castille Leadership Academy of Woodlawn and provide a Christian environment to challenge inner-city youth to excel, provide positive role models in their communities, disciple youth and develop Godly individuals. A trained staff of men and women filled with integrity and faith will provide:

  • computer training

  • mentoring

  • controlled recreational activities

  • academic counseling

  • one-on-one tutoring

  • home-work assistance

  • life-skills training

  • character education

Our goal is to impact generations, one child at a time.
