I have connected with Vickie on several occasions. I have gotten to know more about what Love in Abundance does. I have seen the girls perform in a city-wide event and they were well poised. Vickie is more than passionate about the research she does to ensure that the young ladies in her program receive only the absolute best as far as preparation for their future. Due to her passion and diligence with Love in Abundance my company has shown support in any and every way we can to ensure this program stays around to help even more girls.
Professional with expertise in this field
As a school administrator in Humble ISD and I witnessed the work of their youth in a conference. Love in Abundance provided quality learning activities and events that equip youth for responsible living. It was a priviledge to work with their youth and to see the students working in the program.
