“Lovern is an amazing inspiration to the domestic violence awareness cause. Her willingness to partner at the local and global levels pushes D.V. awareness to the next level, and brings together not just one group, but a coalition of minds working to end violence against men and women and those that do not define themselves within this category. Violence affects us all, and forward thinking minds like Lovern’s help the cause move to bigger fronts.”

“I had the pleasure to work with Lovern and her organization Love Life Now Foundation on her annual Heel-A-Thon Against Domestic Violence.  Lovern is an amazing woman, and is very inspiring. She is very passionate and truly one of the most caring individuals I have ever met. The Heel-A-Thon was very well organized and attended. The whole day was empowering, from the walk to the activities afterwards. South Shore Women’s Resource Center clients benefited from the foundations generous donation. It was truly a wonderful experience to work with Lovern, she is an inspiration to us all.”

“This past October, the Love Life Now Foundation, organized a bedding drive for South Shore Women’s Resource Center. The drive was very successful and very well organized. Again, Lovern’s passion shined through. Everyone I have met in connection with the foundation have been truly amazing people and very kind. Our clients have benefited from their kindness and passion towards the issue. Thank you to the Love Life Now Foundation for your generosity and kindness. Our clients have truly benefited.”

“Love Life Now Foundation has been a stalwart supporter of our mission to end sexual and domestic violence. Lovern (President at Love Life Now) came to our organization as a volunteer, where she went through thirty-five hours of training to answer calls on our twenty-four hour hotline. Lovern is also the driving force behind Initiatives to raise awareness and funds to support our work with clients and their families. They hosted a Walk-A-Thon this and coordinates an annual Bedding Drive. This year, (2012) Love Life Now is hosting a White Ribbon Night Gala on our behalf! We are most grateful to Lovern and her team for their efforts!”

“A famous peace activist once said, “Wisdom is knowing what to do next;
virtue is doing it.” You are obviously both wise and virtuous Lovern. Please accept our sincere thanks for volunteering your time and conducting Initiatives for our women and children here at Penelope’s Place Shelter. Your generosity
benefits countless others. Your support won’t be forgotten.”

“Love Life Now Foundation has been incredibly helpful in gathering donations for the Elizabeth Stone House and for spreading the word not only on what we do at ESH, but also on the issue of domestic violence on the whole. Lovern’s Initiatives and passion for spreading domestic violence awareness has resulted in several successful bedding drives. They collectively have gathered an enormous amount of new bedding, linens, pillows, etc. for ESH clients – items that are of the utmost importance as many people come to us with very minimal belongings and often rely on ESH to provide them with the very basics. We are very grateful for Love Life Now’s commitment to the Elizabeth Stone House and the cause!”

“Lovern J. Augustine has been very active in the community to promote “Awareness Against Domestic Abuse”. Her interview with my newsmagazine has opened the door to many people who have emailed thanking me for bringing her personal story of abuse into the open. Realizing how important this interview was, she took her experiences and continued that with an ongoing monthly column to continue to promote, uplift and educate. With her column and her ongoing Initiatives, she is helping so many people who have kept Domestic Violence a secret because of shame or embarrassment to now have a release and a shero to emulate to. She is a real phenomenal woman.”

“Lovern is a tireless champion of Domestic Violence prevention, advocacy and awareness. Everyone she encounters will know more about this epidemic after spending only a few short minutes with her. A survivor, she has turned her pain into Initiatives to promote the prevention of this silent epidemic. I am extremely proud of the work that she has done since being crowned Mrs. Ethnic New England 2010 and Mrs. Ethnic World International 2011 where she used this platform to help countless people. We at ENE support her mission with Love Life Now Foundation.”
