I went to Love n Me for some anger management classes

“I went to Love n Me for some anger management classes and personal counseling for 6 months. They really helped me! The CEO (Unique) is really nice, down to earth, and very laid back. She made it very easy to speak about sensitive matters. She’s very caring and compassionate! Excellent service.”

I was having some problems with my teen daughter

“I was having some problems with my teen daughter who was using drugs, not attending classes, and being disrespectful. I contacted 211 for a referral and got Love n Me’s information. When I contacted them about my daughter, she (Unique) was polite and helpful. After taking my daughter to Love n Me, she has changed completely. She’s no longer doing drugs, cutting classes, her grades have gone up, and she has a much better attitude towards me. I highly recommend Love n Me.”

When I was 16, I ran away from home

“When I was 16, I ran away from home and met a guy who forced me into prostitution. One day this lady pulls up, hands me her business card, and says, ‘If you ever need help, call me.’ I ended up calling her some weeks later at 2:30 am because I was tired of being abused and being forced to sell my body.”

When I called, the CEO (Unique) got out of bed at 2:30 am, came to Oakland, picked me up, and took me to her home. She fed me, provided me with some clothing, and contacted my mother to let her know I was safe. The whole time she kept telling me, ‘You need to get back in school … You need your education.’ Unique helped me work out things with my mother, enroll in schools, and monitored my grades. Every week I was mentored, provided with tutoring, and received counseling for me and my mother.”

“Thanks Love n Me for helping me graduate from high school. I’m currently at Laney College Cosmetology School doing hair, which I love. Thanks to Love n Me for saving my life!”
