LFF joins the Lotus House in celebrating upcoming construction of state-of-the-art shelter.
Miami, November 30, 2016 – This was an important and active year for the Leesfield Foundation as it expanded its reach nationally, while continuing our commitment to important local organizations and needs.
Our biggest event this year was the Foundation’s major gift to the construction of the Lotus House new women and children’s shelter. The Lotus House/Sundari Foundation is specifically committed to the care and rehabilitation of homeless women and children in Miami.
The Lotus House has begun a major reconstruction of its new facility which will accommodate nearly 500 needy and deserving women and children of Miami-Dade County, allowing improvement and a fresh start of their lives. “The generous donation from the Leesfield Family Foundation provides essential resources so the women, youth and children Lotus House serves can heal, grow and blossom into who they are meant to be. We are grateful beyond words for this truly life saving support.,” said Constance Collins, President and Executive Director.
On November 12, 2016, the Leesfield Family Foundation incorporated the birthday celebration of Chairwoman, Cynthia Leesfield, into the Lotus event, a double festivity with over 400 friends, local dignitaries and supporters in attendance from Miami-Dade County.
