Love can change the world.

Hi! Thank you for caring. Thank you for loving.

 

My name is Kseniya and this beautiful movement started out as an unprecedented and unified community effort. 

My background as a Finance Director for congressional and senatorial campaigns as well as the Director of Development for AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, Utah's umbrella organization for the state's civil legal aid nonprofits, has prepared me to create and lead this nonprofit, while also arming me with the skills that it takes to fund such an endeavor. A Masters in Economics bolsters my ability to manage the day to day operations and the financial paperwork of running an organization. 

But most importantly, this movement is very dear to my heart. Having spent time as a child homeless, couch-surfing, and also living in a domestic violence shelter coupled with a recent bout of Covid-driven homelessness in which I spent living in a motor home for most of 2020, makes this effort an endemic desire to prevent such sorrow from continuing. 

 

We can do better. We must. It takes a village. Thank you for joining us.  

Love can change the world. It already is.

Kseniya Kniazeva

Founder & Executive Director

We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change we seek.

I have seen the ravages of addiction in my friends and loved ones, and I understand how a helping hand, a smiling face, and the simple act of caring can change everything.

I am passionate about natural healing, raising bees, my two children, my husband and being that helping hand in the darkness.

A Perfectionist on Every Detail 

My name is Angela Kerns. I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend. I am proud to be born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, one of the most beautiful places to live with the red rock deserts to the cool green mountains...not to mention the beautiful winter snow! 

I love my family, animals and camping. I'm a music and movie buff. 

I work as an assistant meat manager, board member for Nomad Alliance and volunteer animal transporter with many paws animal transport as well as others! 

I've always tried to help others but felt the pull to do more after I watched my beautiful daughter struggle with heroin addiction and homelessness. I watched the internal struggle within her and the hopelessness she felt. The shame and stigma that comes with it! I saw people treating her so poorly with disgust and judgment! It broke my heart! "THIS IS MY DAUGHTER" I wanted to scram at them! She's beautiful, intelligent, so kind hearted and all around amazing! She just needs help!! 

There are so many forgotten people whom have been treated so horrible and disregarded and I want to help change that..to let them know we are here..we see you..we care about you and we will help you!!

I've had my struggles and had my fair share of hurt too but I am blessed and humbled and wish to bless others!

Giving back is a part of our social responsibility. 

Helping our nomads and assisting others get out of homelessness, is a social responsibility. As a volunteer & board member with the Nomad Alliance, we choose to invest our efforts into a struggling community and the people who live on the streets. Regardless if it’s because of mental illness, drugs or a lack of skills, I can sleep at night knowing we are providing an invaluable, loving service to our community and giving back is a part of our social responsibility.

 

If only everyone did something selfless! Imagine collecting $1 from every human on earth, we could end world hunger!! It’s always in the power of ONE!

 

Beyond that, I’m Christian meaning “Christ-like” therefore, how can you ignore and pass by a cold body, hungry tummy or thirsty tongue? You can’t if you are truly connected to humanity and our heart chakra. A huge heart to serve is a part of my empathetic soul. 

 

I teach self love courses & personality, gender & ethnicity science in order to increase ones influence & awareness in business and their personal life alike. I help CEO’s, entrepreneurs, professionals, & even hopeless romantics alike, receive clarity on their value proposition and track delivery to their exact target market. I help people fall in love with who they are and execute their true potential! I help turn excuses into actions with a precise step by step daily process.

 

It’s easy to spend our time talking about what we must do, but in learning from others, I take what we know and break it down into bite-sized tangible and actionable steps based on ones personality and skill set. I’m your co-pilot who brings awareness to better communication in every relationship we encounter.
