A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
As founder, president and CEO of Lori’s Daughter, I saw the
need to promote self-empowerment and unity within some of thE world’s most disenfranchised individuals, families, and communities. Lori’s Daughter was created with the purpose of encouraging women to remain resilient and patientlY preserve. I desire everyone that comes into contact with Lori’s Daughter to
live by the expression of my heart “Never give up. No one’s better qualifieD than you”.
I founded Lori’s Daughter in 2011. My vision is to meet the
needs of underserved individuals, families, and communities. To accomplish this we need to focus on service, advocacy, and mentoring. One of Lori’s Daughter major initiative includes “My Sister’s Keeper”. Our services our designed to assist people in developing and maintaining enriched and meaningful lives by fully maximizing our full-service support system.
My mother, Lori Williams, passed away on December 20, 2009. Science may have proclaimed that her cause of death was complications of HIV; However I believe she passed away of a broken heart. The death of my mother is what inspired me to become my sister’s keeper.
