Latina L. Newsome (President & Founder)

I am a mother.  I parent the three of my birth children and many children whom God gives to me as I travel along my journey. I am a parent advocate, and find pleasure in teaching principles of parenting, a subject that I believe should be taught in organized schools.

Raquel Robinson (Treasurer)

I am an admissions counselor at a drug/alcohol and mental health treatment center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I truly enjoy this work, because I’m the first point of contact for individuals looking to change their lives.  I like to encourage clients by letting them know they are capable of making a positive change and they are worth it. As I grow in my field, I would like to use my expertise to help the foundation fulfill the needs of its members.

La'Rene Gamble Braddy (Secretary)

I am  first a mother  to 3 birth children and “love like a mother” countless children of friends and relatives and hundreds of students that I have had the privilege of influencing throughout my career as an educator over a span of 20 plus years.  After initially being adopted and then losing my parents at a young age, God has taught me that building family is not always derived from a construct of lineage, but cultivating and harvesting the love in our hearts and giving it to others through our prayers and what we do.
