Everyone is Valuable

Some just need A Whole Lotta Kindness
and to be given a chance!
Food & Groceries

A Whole Lotta Kindness's Healthy Food Program nurtures the well-being of youth by providing access to nutritious meals, cultivating healthy eating habits, and educating about the importance of a balanced diet in a supportive and engaging environment.


As strong proponents of “knowledge is power,” A Whole Lotta Kindness continues to help everyone who has the desire to get an education get one.


Once a home is secured, a huge struggle is transportation. Bus passes are given out, however, rainy days, early sunsets, and changing work hours bring additional transportation challenges for our youth. We offer Uber/Lyft gift cards, provide bicycles, electric scooters, and skateboards.

Joining the Art Program at A Whole Lotta Kindness opened a new world for me. I discovered my love for painting, and it's become a way for me to express myself and feel confident. This program has truly changed my life by showing me how art can be a powerful form of self-expression.

I never realized how important mental health was until I joined the Mental Health Program at A Whole Lotta Kindness. The support and guidance I received have been transformative. I've learned coping skills and how to manage stress, which has made a huge difference in my daily life. I feel more resilient and optimistic about the future now.
George Flavius
The Music Program has been a game-changer for me. Before, I was shy and struggled to find my voice. But through music, I've found a way to express my emotions and connect with others. It's more than just learning an instrument; it's about finding your rhythm in life.
