Mary Alyce Sweeney Foundation is dedicated to giving our community the very best opportunities, with a focus on homelessness, domestic violence and alcohol abuse. Founded in 2009 by Roderick Lewis and Faye Sweeney, the Mary Alyce Foundation has come a long way from its beginnings in a home office. When Roderick Lewis and Faye Sweeney first started out, their passion to make a difference in the life of one person, one at a time drove them to do intense research and gave them the impetus to turn hard work and inspiration into to a community driven foundation. We now make a difference in our community and the surrounding Kentucky area through our partnerships with area organizations.
If each one, helps one, you won't solve the world's problems,
but you will solve one person's problem in this world.
Our motto says it all, "we are the communities that we serve and we do make dreams come true". Our visions are guided by the principle of serving our ethnically diverse and social-economically challenged urban communities. Our programs include:
- Senior and Junior Prom Dress and Tuxedo Giveaway
- Freshman and Sophmore College Care Packages
- Resources for work at home opportunities
- Guidance for adults and teens (domestic violence)
- Supporting the Arts partnership with Nzingha Creations Gallery
- Holiday Care Packages for Homeless Families and Children
The foundation's purpose is to make a difference in the life of one person... one at a time.
We believe, we can not afford to lose one... not one more person to: domestic violence, drug addiction, poverty of any kind, or homelessness. We believe our children are the most important resource we have in making this world that we live in a better place. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of our youth and the community.
WE are dedicated to helping those in need find the proper resources to get back on their feet.
WE want to help those that are looking to help themselves but seem to be running into "stumbling blocks".
WE want to provide information and guidance to individuals that possess the "strength of heart" but may be lacking in the "strength of monetary funds".
