Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT Touch Gift Foundation’s (TGF) mission is to destroy the cycle of poverty by eradicating the poverty mindset and to empower people to want to change through the resources to make that change happen. TGF’s vision is to create a resourceful alliance that governs a community, empowers people, and influences changed behavior from poverty to independence, personal and professional development, growth, and sustainability. Core Values Impacting L.I.V.E.S. L = Leadership | LOVE I = Independence V = Visibility E = Empowerment S = Security | Sustainability



In 2018, TGF Founder gave up her life savings and well-credentialed, successful 6-figure driven healthcare and higher education administration career to serve the community. Those funds were used to purchase essentials for the community. A community bound in low-literacy, unemployment, and homelessness. A community persisted in cycles of poverty, incarceration, and inability to envision life beyond their current misfortune.

We envision breaking through their cycles of poverty resulting in self-sufficiency and independence. Solutions included adult education, mental health, restorative justice, and employment and housing security.
