In 2007, Leah decided to launch the LadyLike Foundation as a non-profit 501c3 whose purpose is to educate, empower and inspire young women living in underprivileged inner-city communities. Through a cutting-edge academic curriculum, scholarships, life skill lessons, mentorships, and experiences young ladies are challenged to reach their highest potential and placed on a platform for success.
Currently, the LadyLike Foundation has completed its 12th year as a non-profit organization continuing its programs open to girls ages 12 to 18. The foundation has also given away over $100,000.00 in college scholarships to college bound young ladies within the community who have a 3.5 GPA or higher and are furthering their education at Prestigious Universities such as Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Howard, Vassar, UC Santa Barbara, Spellman, Prairie View A&M University, and NYU just to name a few.
Leah has received several awards for her philanthropic work and contribution to young girls. Some of her awards include: The “Youth Champion” Award from the Wiley Speech and Therapy Center, and the “Spirit of Giving Award” with her husband from the FonkozeOrganization, and the “Inspiration Award” from AEG Women in Entertainment Luncheon.
Leah has a passion for young women. She dreams that all of the young women she encounters establishes a relationship with the Lord, realizes their value, reaches their full potential, and becomes socially, intellectually, and mentally prepared to compete in today’s society. She truly believes that the LadyLike Foundation will be the organization that enables women of all cultures, ages, and socioeconomic backgrounds to becoming the virtuous, well-rounded “Lady” that God has created them to be.Support The Foundation
