Justinah McFadden was born and raised in New York City in the Brooklyn section. Being raised in lower income areas helped her to see the need for social service at an early age.
The young CEO began her education in CUNY community college where she had several majors; all part of finding herself. It was here where she majored in Human Services and interned for Mentally ill Chemical Abusers, at the Salvation Army for a year. She was just 19 years old at the time and recognized how homelessness & mental illness were directly correlated. Justinah has also attended Chaplaincy School, Bible School & Law School later in life. She now resides in California where Jus People Ministries headquarters are located.
United States Army Reserves
While in College Justinah was a NYC Police Cadet, which is a person that has taken & passed the Police Exam & plans to have a future in Law Enforcement. In December 2001 Justinah took the oath to serve her Country domestically & abroad when she joined the United States Army Reserves.
Career In Law Enforcement
January 2004 Justinah entered the New York City Police Academy. She successfully graduated and immediately was patrolling and serving the East New York community in Brooklyn. During her career in Law Enforcement she realized there were a lot of resources lacking in communities, especially communities of color. She retired early as a Police Officer & has since completed several years of Law School, while still impacting her local community with massive volunteering efforts.
Chaplain/ Bible School
In 2017 Justinah began Chaplaincy school with the NY State Chaplaincy Task Force. She successfully graduated in April 2018 with honors and is a Chaplain in the State of New York & soon to be in the State of California.

Many Talents/ One Purpose
This dedicated multi-talented woman of God has done many things. She is an author of eight books with several other works on the way. What is most important to her is not her success or fame, but that she ushers people into their purpose and calling through freedom in Jesus Christ. It is her personal mission to go into the darkest of places to reach Gods people. Justinah is also the CEO & Founder of Girl Chef La Jay – Gourmet Restaurant. Ten percent of restaurant proceeds goes towards her local & global efforts to feed & house the poor.
