Lori has spent many years volunteering with the homeless, refugees, and foster children locally alongside some great non profits. She then visited Peru in 2014 with her daughter on a mission trip and was overwhelmed by the needs of the children and young women she met who were orphaned. She returned home with a passion and desire to continue her work full time, locally and globally. She actively devotes her time now to caring for kids and youth who are homeless, refugees, orphaned and beyond. She is active in her home church, a bible study teacher serving the refugee youth and the mother of 4 children.
