The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation is an all volunteer charitable organization with a seemingly simple goal, to help mothers in need, all mothers regardless of age, race, social or economic background.

Please watch the video below to find out more about the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation; who we are and what we do to help women facing difficult challenges. Please feel free to share our story with others. The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established in 2000 by Lauren’s parents, family and friends to honor her memory. The Foundation’s credo – “Mothers Matter” – is a tribute to Lauren and a mother’s love.

Our Mission – to encourage mothers to achieve economically and educationally and to seek brighter futures for themselves and their families – reflects Lauren’s legacy of helping others lead better lives. In carrying out our Mission, we pledge to uphold and advocate Lauren’s values and wishes for a safer, gentler world.

Our Vision – is to bring Lauren’s Legacy of Love, Laughter and Light to children and families in need; to help those who do not have a lot of sunshine in their lives. Our Vision is to extend a helping hand to young women who best reflect Lauren’s values and attributes; to provide financial assistance to help them achieve goals and success in life. By carrying out its Mission to help others realize their full potential to lead lives of contribution and service, the Foundation will ensure that Lauren’s Legacy of Love, Laughter and Light lives on for all our Tomorrows.
