Our Mission

Henry Williams was a man of great character and integrity who transitioned to his final resting place on May 16, 2017. He loved his wife. He  loved his children. He loved his family. He loved his friends. He loved his community. And they all loved him right back.

In memory of how he loved, the Henry Williams Love Foundation (HWLF) was established to provide short-term supportive services, advocacy, and policy support to youth and families in need. Henry lost both of his parents at a very young age and has always demonstrated the greatest capacity for love for those who experience such unplanned loss, unexpected needs, and require advocacy. In keeping with the values of Henry’s life and the foundation of LOVE he built for his family and friends, the Henry Williams Love Foundation hopes to be a blessing for many for years to come to those who need LOVE the most.

Our Vision and Values

HWLF through its services, programs, and projects seeks to:

  • Build resiliency in individuals and communities as an opportunity to disrupt systems that support low achievement and low expectation
  • Increase equity in spaces where people of color and women are typically excluded or are disproportionately represented
  • Be innovative and use design thinking to create activities that fill identified quality of life gaps in a non-duplicative way

The Henry Williams Love Foundation does not, by policy or practice, discriminate against a person or group on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, gender identity and expression, marital or military status, or based on any individual’s status in any group or class protected by applicable federal, state, or local law.
