FAMLO is a not-for-profit organization founded by tenured corporate and faith-based organizational facilitators.
We no longer accept the status quo response of public health and nation-based policies to vulnerable individuals, families and communities living with and affected by poverty, violence, oppression, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, HIV/AIDS, intravaneous and other potentially addictive drug use.
We believe that we are all vulnerable as long as we are willing to ignore the terror in the lives of our global neighbors. Our safety and that of future generations is best achieved through one-to-one experiences that raise consciousness, desensitize and create an empathic relationship.
FAMLO. Helping the human family love itself into wholeness and health.
Our Founder, Dr. Cindi Love, is a tenured executive of a Fortune 500 corporation where she was responsible for design and implementation of a global network of constituents in the mid 1990's, long before the emergence of technology platforms like FaceBook. She came to this role after selling her company and its proprietary model for community engagement and service to The TORO Company (NYSE:TTC) in 1996.
Prior to this work, she was Chair/CEO/Founder of a company serving public schools and institutions of higher education in the installation and management of comprehensive computer-based instructional systems.
Early in her career, she was a university faculty member where she taught multicultural pluralistic assessment courses as well as designing experiences for families of exceptional children. She is a licensed diagnostician, an ordained minister and a speech pathologist.
