Proceeds from the “Aspiring 2B A Better Me™ Concert Series” will be used to open L.M. Foundation’s Aspiration House™ which will serve as a transitional home and safe-haven in Prince George’s County. It will have the capacity to house up to 25 female survivors of domestic violence and their families. The organization’s founder, Pamela Price says, “We aim to help them rebuild their lives in a safe environment; becoming their foundation as they become A Better Me.”

In 2016, L.M. Foundation provided clothing and toiletries to local women shelters and helped low income families pay for utilities. In collaboration with a faith-based organization, it’s “Back To School Drive” was a success thanks to its sponsor, a local Target, and donors. Price is now targeting families in crisis and building county relationships, within Prince George’s County, in preparation for the opening of Aspiration House™ in 2017.
