Stronger Together Stories That Build

We're Growing Stronger, Together

We’re building a stronger future together – Let’s record how we did it.

When D’Andre Lampkin started this organization, he had you in mind. He knew that building stronger, more resilient communities requires teamwork. No community is a success on its own – It takes dedicated individuals like you – community leaders, stakeholders, and connections with business leaders sharing ideas to move communities forward. Communities thrive when people like you collaborate to tackle some of the biggest issues facing our neighborhoods. None of what we have accomplished would have been possible without you. Our donors, supporters, and volunteers are the true heart of what we do.

Now, we want to hear directly from you. Following the 2 year anniversary of the founding of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation, we want to be able to tell a much fuller story of what you are doing to help make your communities stronger and more resilient. We also want to give visitors to our website a more detailed picture of how the Foundation is inspiring others throughout the nation and around the world. We encourage you to share your stories in whatever format best illustrates your efforts.

Featured Story of Impact: Courtney O'Steen

Through pageantry she has found she is able to expand volunteering her time to youth and was able to work on Justin Rudd’s Community Action Team serving at the monthly 30-Minute Beach Clean-up, Operation Santa Paws, Both the Youth & Adult Spelling Bees, Long Beach Losers Weight Loss Contest, The Annual Bulldog Beauty Contest, Long Beach Polar Splash, Valentines Day at the Mental Health Village, The Annual Interfaith Blessing of the Animals and many other events. Courtney and her mother Jana were bullied and abused  at their home by Courtney’s own father, and then at school the bullying continued with her peers. She decided to make her life a story for others to learn, grow and heal their spirits. In addition she continued to grow her program B.U.L.L.Y. and more than double the number of students she spoke to in 2012 from 2011.
