20 Years and Still Going Strong

LOVELAND, OH. — January 28, 2017. The Loveland Initiative was formed in 1996 by a group of residents in Westover Village, Loveland Pines, and MacArthur Park apartments.  Residents from these complexes are members of The Loveland Initiative Board, as well as others from the community at large. We are a need based, all volunteer, mission focused, and community based organization. Residents started the organization to improve the lives of their children. We often work out of apartments, homes, laundry rooms, donated space, storage facilities and even cars; providing services and necessities.

Over the last 20 years we have provided services to other families in need that live within the Loveland City School District. The organization focuses its attention through a wide variety of programs like the Cool School Tutoring, Back-to-School Backpacks, the Christmas Toy Store, Set for Success, and Tracy Johnson scholarship programs.  We have grown our services to help over 250 children and their families annually.  As an organization, we are dedicated to improving the lives of children and families in Loveland.

Our goal is to make a positive impact in our community for children and families”, said Terri Rogers, Executive Director of The Loveland Initiative. “We feel that we know what our clients’ needs are”.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we would like to invite you to visit our new and improved website of the Loveland Initiative at lovelandinitiative.org. We have created a more navigable website with additional resources, better tools, and a new visual design to support our donors, partners, and clients, as well as to present more accurate, up to date information to the community. Join our email list to stay informed about our upcoming programs, organization news, and how we are bridging the gap for underserved families and children in our community.

We express our deepest thanks to all our supporters, partners, and new partners for your many contributions and donations. Over the years, you’ve demonstrated your deep commitment to our mission.  Your participation has repeatedly played a key role in our success!
