Background and Mission
The Sharon Laverne Community Foundation (TSLCF) was established on April 4, 2017. Our organization’s vision began to evolve when a number of individuals came to our organization’s founder asking for guidance as they expressed concerns about the numerous problems in their community and the overall plight of residents of the 7th and 8th Wards. At the time, our Founder and CEO was serving as the Black Emphasis Program Manager in the Federal Government and these discussions led to the creation of TSLCF. Further discussions lead to the question, "How can we help on a larger scale?" So began the Foundation and its mission to improve the lives of the impoverished, provide training, and address hot-button issues like urban crime and incarceration.
