Who we are

We are a team of change-makers who believe that every child deserves a happy, healthy, and nurturing environment.

Love You, Kid is a dream that began in 1977.  In that year, our founder, Mark Steinberg, was a student at West Virginia University (WVU). WVU sponsored a volunteer program in which students earning a degree in Psychology would visit the homes of children at high risk of abuse or neglect.  It was Mark’s responsibility to identify risk factors in the homes and make recommendations on ways the families could put protective factors in place. After completing the program, the dream of building a nonprofit that would improve the lives of abused and neglected children was something that he needed to do.

That dream expanded over the years and the Love You, Kid Foundation was born. The Foundation was founded on the belief that every child should be exposed to a happy, healthy, and nurturing environment.  We, at the Foundation, support and encourage the development of our future generations.  We want to play a meaningful role in improving the lives of our children.
