About Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes Foundation (LLF): Headquartered in Stone Mountain, Georgia, the Foundation was developed in 2003 by Lisa's mother, Wanda Lopes-Colemon, her brother Ronald Lopes and family friend Anashay Murphy. LLF was inspired by Lisa's dream of building a children’s home on land she purchased in Honduras. Shortly after revealing her plans to her family, Lisa passed away in an auto accident in Honduras.

Four years later LLF opened Lisa's Home of Love, a 10,000 sq. ft., residential facility. The orphanage includes a dental clinic, FREE healthcare, and on-site FREE schooling, which is open to children throughout the community who have no school to attend. The LLF orphanage also has progressive volunteer and sponsorship programs, with future expansion goals.
