R.O.S.E’s Love Foundation was founded on the personal belief that challenges are stepping-stones to our success. It is because of challenges I believe we all need a helping hand sometimes. The foundation began as a vision on May 7, 2016 during my doctoral ceremony. I finally realized all these years why my mother shared everything she had to make someone else’s life a little more bearable to cope with.
As I witnessed the smiles on my guest faces as they celebrated my accomplishment, I realized what my mother must have seen in the faces of those she helped who were less fortunate. Giving and helping brings fulfillment to my life. –Dr. Georgena Wiley DNP
Rose Marie Ross, who was a “labor of love” inspired R.O.S.E’s Love Foundation. She always opened her doors and arms to assist anyone who was in need whether homeless, abused, neglected or needed unconditional love. Today, R.O.S.E’s love continues to spread all around. To continue her legacy her children created R.O.S.E’s Love Foundation. “We understand what it means to give unconditional love and support to those who are broken. We believe in helping others reach their goals in life. This is what our mother showed us daily. If “we” as an organization can touch one, we have touched millions.” Patience, unconditional love, compassion, and integrity is OUR foundation to ensuring that those we touch can begin to make changes in their lives so they can pay it forward when they are able.
