The GOAL, objective, aim, end, ambition, purpose, target and aspiration of OVL Foundation USA is to provide several community-based programs that will serve the overall needs of those throughout our community, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity, who struggle in this life just to exist.
These programs will offer services, education, training and resources that will enhance the quality of life for the disenfranchised, the downtrodden, the at-risk youth, and the outcast. We will come along side everyone who desires to experience a better life by equipping them with knowledge and life skills that can be applied to their daily lives immediately to improve their present situation, and allow them to plan for a brighter future not only for themselves but also for their family.
Our MISSION, assignment, task, job, work, charge, undertaking, duty, and operation is simply to impact the community one need at a time! We desire to accomplish this through the following suggested programs: “Helping Hands” Outreach for the unhoused community; Back-to-School Back Pack Drive for the underprivileged youth; Career Closet for job interviews; Computer Lab; Domestic Violence Seminars; Educational Modules; 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 emancipated Single Mothers and pregnant women aging out of foster care (18-21); Winter Coat Drive; and Work Entry program.
To make this happen, we have IMPLEMENTED great momentum and awesome partnerships with two local non-profits: Bay Area Rescue Mission, Richmond, CA and Dorothy Day House, Berkeley, CA. We are also supporters of USO and AARP Foundation, as well as having a physical presence in the community as we go out monthly to the encampments and serve the unhoused with bags of essential items, such as blankets, scarves, gloves, hats, hygiene kits, COVID testing kits, first aid kits, socks, masks, hand sanitizer, toilet tissue, Kleenex tissue, hand warmers, tarps, collapsible cups, inflatable pillows, sleeping bags, feminine products, gallons of water, a smile, a word of hope, an act of kindness and a fervent prayer for those who desire it.
We are fortunate to have a phenomenal team of women who are exceptional in what they do, who have readily grasped the vision, and who also have a heart of compassion for our community and those who live in it. We work together in unity, harmony, symphony and euphony. We enjoy the work, and we enjoy one another! We are grateful to be led by a strong yet humble woman of faith, a servant’s servant, who witnessed her parents nurture and care for those in need in the community. They freely opened their heart, hands, and home. Her desire is to continue the great work her parents begun, and take it to the next level!
OVL Foundation USA is established upon the principles of humanity, generosity, equality and liberality! We exist solely and intentionally to “Impact the Community One Need at a Time!”
