Our History . . .

H and H Beginnings

Marriese Jones Sr. 
Personal Statement 


My name is Marriese Jones, Sr.  I am the fifth child of six, born and raised in a little town south of Miami called Goulds.  

I am the founder of Hedges and Highway Outreach Movement because it conveys the purpose of my life.  At the age of 47, I finally see that everything in my life has led me to this perfect point, where I will lead an organization that reveals a life calling, rather than a mere job.

My passion from the time I was a little boy until now has been to care deeply, to the point of action, about the welfare of human beings.  As I child, I fought and protected weaker children.  I learned to live on my own at the age of 13.  Even then I can remember cooking for people and inviting them to my apartment to feed and care for them.  

​Today this is my life.  I have a non-profit of my very own called Hedges and Highway Outreach Movement: An unusual outreach that serves the nations through transformational services and a global partnership of HOPE.  H and H is based on my call to this ministry as seen in the Scripture of Luke 14:23 where the Lord said to me, "And the Lord said to his servant, Go out into the highway and hedges and compel the people to come that my house may be filled."
