What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

DNA Initiative

The mission is to support community-based health programs for the indigent and to share lessons and build solidarity through global partnerships. DNA provides support to community farms by providing support for local agriculture projects in communities identified as lacking fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods. We are transforming how families gain access to affordable nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables in urban communities.

Since 2012, the Breath Giving Portraits Project, in cooperation with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, has brought awareness to the hardships of children restricted by symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis.

Traditionally, the term social good is used to described an act or service that benefits society. Acts or services tend to impact and benefit the largest number of people in a region in the largest way possible. Some examples include initiatives and projects focused on clean air, clean water, and literacy.

The Lampkin Foundation believes if you want to make a difference, you must work to improve the world around you through volunteer work and supporting causes that matter to you.

In terms of human impacts of disasters, the kinds of impacts we can expect when a major disaster occurs are both physical and psychological. There are the obvious impacts like physical damage to the body. People get injured, or worse, die. But there are other factors like stress, which can lead to depression and other health related conditions. Perhaps most concerning is the psychological and emotional impact. According to the National Disaster Recovery Framework, a successful recovery process includes addressing the psychological and emotional needs of the community. The Disaster Relief Effort endeavors to providing funding for resources, counseling, support, screening, and treatment of effected individuals when available.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In the year 2020 and at the onset of Governor Gavin Newsom’s Safer-At-Home order, the Lampkin Foundation transitioned operations to provide hot meals to Ontario residents who were furloughed, unemployed, or unable to take advantage of social services due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. We initially opened our service to Ontario seniors. However, when our number of recipients continued to be low and resources were in abundance, we opened up the service to all San Bernardino County residents while giving priority to seniors. Current funding needs include:

Ongoing prioritizing of senior citizens
Advertising in community publications
Matching funds to retain grants provided by FEMA Emergency Food Service Program.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
At-risk youth
Unemployed people
Veterans
Families

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation was established to create positive opportunities and change for individuals, communities, and environments. Our goal is to sponsor and develop programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities and positively impact individuals wanting to lead happier and healthier lives.

Here are just a sample of programs and initiatives we have developed to benefit your community:\r\n\r\nBreath Giving Portraits Project\r\nSince 2012, the Breath Giving Portraits Project, in cooperation with Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, has brought awareness to the hardships of children restricted by symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis.\r\n\r\nDeveloping Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) Initiative\r\nThe mission is to support community-based health programs for the indigent and to share lessons and build solidarity through global partnerships. DNA provides support to community farms by providing support for local agriculture projects in communities identified as lacking fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods. We are transforming how families gain access to affordable nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables in urban communities.

The D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is a Human Service Organization that focuses on the power of volunteers; people and individuals. The Foundation does not rely solely on it's ability to provide monetary donations, gifts, or grants. We are capable of meeting our goals by relying on the ingenuity of our volunteers in lieu of donations.

In November 2017 we shared the story of Kevin whose mother got a chance to see him grow into a young adult thanks to the Breath Giving Portraits Project. We also shared with our community of supporters testimony from Dr. Keens, who witnessed how the Breath Giving Portraits Project brought normalcy to the families who otherwise wouldn't spend time together.\r\n\r\nFollowing Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria we helped to rebuild homes in Houston, Texas and provided solar energy to victims in Puerto Rico.\r\n\r\nIn Spring and Summer 2017 we told supporters about how 60 families received a weeks' worth of food thanks to the DNA Initiative and partnerships with community farms.\r\n\r\n2017 was the year we formed the D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation and we want to express our thanks to our community of donors and supporters. We learned a great deal about what it truly means to serve. We read stories, listened, and tackled the issues that matter to our supporters. It is our hope that as the Foundation grows we become more effective in empowering people to positively change their communities.\r\n\r\nWe are especially proud of the work we done in Ontario, California's Community Garden; the partnerships we formed with like-minded organizations like Huerta Del Valle, Third Wave Volunteers, and Global Empowerment Mission; our efforts to help the residents of Houston, Texas, and the work we continue to do to bring relief to residents in Puerto Rico. We also hope to bring the Breath Giving Portraits Project back to full funding.\r\nBut more importantly, our supporters helped us define our mission. We are building stronger communities, together!\r\n\r\nIn case you missed it, communications were sent from our community of donors and supporters expressing why the D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is important to them and how we have made their communities stronger and more resilient. \r\n\r\nWe're just getting started and we're glad to have our supporters with us on this journey. We're confident we can succeed because they are helping us build this organization brick by brick, story by story. And we can't wait to hear more from our supporters about how we can make this organization stronger.
