The Leesfield Family Foundation’s mission statement is “Generosity, Warmth and Reassurance” with an emphasis on supporting organizations concerned with women and children’s needs.
This year, LFF announced its major grant to a unique organization located in Miami’s poorest neighborhood which serves as a safe haven to indigent women and children, providing shelter, education and resources to improve their lives and ultimately achieve self-sufficiency, the Sundari Foundation (Lotus House). Through the leadership of its President and Executive Director, Constance Collins, The Lotus House houses over 175 homeless women and children on a daily basis, providing them access to medical care, job training, computer classes and financial literacy.

“We are privileged to support the fine work of The Lotus House and its President and Executive Director, Constance Collins, and look forward to continuing our relationship,” said Chair Ira Leesfield.
