J.D. Rhone grew up in Richmond and came to follow a criminal path as a drug dealer, which led to a period of incarceration. After his release, committed to turning his life around, J.D. began working construction, but a strong urge to give back to his community led J.D. to Youth ALIVE!, where he joined the team in March of 2015. Now he is Lead Intervention Specialist for Youth ALIVE!’s hospital-based intervention program. He meets young victims of violence, often at their hospital bedsides, to offer guidance, help getting back to life, help dealing with the ongoing trauma that violence causes. He works to make wounded youth safe and to get them moving forward.
