What once began as a tiny seed, deposited a long time ago, has now blossomed into a full-grown fruit-bearing tree with limbs, branches and ripe fruit for the picking. The initial goal was simply to open and operate a much-needed transitional home for single mothers between the ages of 18 & 20. The vision has since broadened into the formation of a non-profit foundation. This Foundation will encompass several community-based programs that will serve the needs of many within our community who struggle in this life, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
Through various programs, OVL Foundation will offer services, education, training, and resources that will enhance the quality of life for the disenfranchised, downtrodden, at-risk, poor in spirit, meek, and lowly. OVL Foundation will work with individuals who desire to experience a better life. We will equip them with knowledge, wisdom, and life skills they can apply daily to improve their situation and plan for a brighter future for themselves and their families.
OVL Foundation’s Mission is to impact the community one need at a time. We plan to accomplish this through the following: Actively sponsor international children’s program; Affordable Housing; Adopt-A-Sister (Military); Back-to-School Back Pack Drive; Career Closet for job interviews; Computer Lab; Domestic Violence Seminars; Educational Scholarships; Empowerment Workshops; Entrepreneurial Workshops; Female Mentoring (9-17); GED program; Health Awareness & Screening Workshops; Holiday Toy Drive; Literacy Program; Male Mentoring (10-17); Money Management Workshops; Organic Garden; Transitional Housing for Single Mothers (18-20); Winter Coat Drive; and Work Entry program.
OVL Foundation is committed to this enormous task for the sake of humanity. We know that the vision is great, but we believe that with dedicated individuals, available resources, a strong dedication to the cause, and courage, we will accomplish what may seem to some as an impossible mission! OVL Foundation is established upon faith that sees the invisible, expects the incredible, and receives the impossible. The foundation exists to impact the community one need at a time!
