Facts about Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes Foundation:
Headquartered in Stone Mountain, Georgia, the Lisa Lopes Foundation (LLF) was developed in 2003 by Lisa’s mother, Wanda Lopes-Colemon, her brother Ronald Lopes and family friend Anashay Murphy. The Foundation was inspired by Lisa’s dream of building a children’s home on some land she purchased in Honduras. Shortly after revealing her plans to her family, Lisa passed away in an auto accident in Honduras. Four years later they opened up Lisa’s Home of Love, a 10,000 sq. ft. residential facility.

LLF also donates food and toys during the holiday season and works with teens from local Georgia low-income communities. The teens are put through a five-step program that includes: Cultural Arts and Awareness, Healthy Lifestyles, Financial Literacy, Career Development and Civic and Social Responsibility. The program is designed to give the teens a competitive advantage along with increasing their self worth.
