About

Love n Me is a non-profit organization 501(c) (3) dedicated to helping women and girls get back on their feet to pursue a successful, fulfilling life. We believe that the key to finding that inner power and strength comes from loving yourself -- no matter what you’ve been through or what your life choices are.

At Love n Me, we’re all about empowerment. We provide workshops, 24 hour crisis line, counseling, mentoring, and programs designed to help navigate through real-life obstacles and achieve success. Our mission is to teach girls and women to love themselves. Children are a very important part of our communities but young ladies in particular need a little more extra love when they start coming to age. Ladies should know their value. They are queens and should be treated as such, they deserve nothing less. We here at Love n Me all have a common goal to educate, empower and help ladies become successful and productive in not only their lives but their communities.

Love n Me goal is to empower young girls and women to find strength to get up in the face of life’s challenges and disappointments - whether it is a struggle with addiction, educational setbacks, abuse from a partner, identity issues, relationship problems, or financial woes. The end goal is to see each of you rise to these challenges and say "I love myself!" and genuinely mean it. Your worth is not defined by your struggles, mistakes, or by your past. It is not defined by what you do or do not have. It is defined by who you are as a person and that you are special and you matter.
