Mission

Our Mission is to bring hope to those in need, by simply giving them a new pair of shoes.

My Story

I am a wife, mother, and all around do-gooder! My passion in life is helping others, and rooting for the underdog. There are so many amazingly wonderful people in this world of ours who are struggling day to day just to make ends meet, struggling to feed their kids, struggling to pay the bills. They are literally struggling...drowning. In a world where some of us our blessed beyond measure, I decided to stop...slow down, take note and DO something. I want to make a difference. I want to make a difference to someone else. I want to show them that there is absolutely something GOOD in this world, and that something good...is Sole Loved. It starts right here, with me. Our mission at Sole Loved is to bring hope to those less fortunate, by simply giving them a new pair of shoes. That's right, new shoes. It really is that simple. We may not be changing the world, but the excitement in a child's eyes...the tears of overwhelming joy, the happy dance, the hugs...the face of hope that new shoes can bring. Yes!! That's when you know you've made a difference.   -Stacy Bourgeois, CEO/Founder Sole Loved.

Making A Difference

Sports

image302

Many children are unable to participate in school sports or extracurricular activities because they don’t have the proper shoes. Sole Loved has proudly sponsored two local basketball teams and supplied cleats  to hundreds of local kiddos so that they can play soccer and baseball. 

Schools

image303

We work closely with school nurses and Social workers at local Title 1 and low-income schools, to make sure that EVERY child that needs a good and decent pair of shoes, has one. In just 7 days, we provided 354 pair of shoes to children at 5 local schools, in 3 districts!

Community

image304

1 out of every 6 children lives in poverty in the United States, and more than 1/2 of the children growing up in Houston are considered economically disadvantaged. Most of these families are struggling to just get food on the table. We simply make shoes a priority because they can't.

Events

Shoe Drives

image305

We are so grateful to local schools and businesses for hosting shoes drives throughout the year! The outpouring of love and support is incredible each and every time. Thank you!

Partnerships

image306

We love partnering with other local community organizations to help bring shoes to local children and families in need. This past year, we've blessed over 2,500  individuals with new shoes!

The Homeless

image307

We have a special bond with our local homeless friends. Sole Loved actually began on the streets several years ago, bringing hope to those less fortunate, through the gift of a new pair of shoes. 

Our Youth

image308

It's amazing to see what a new pair of shoes can do. The hope, anticipation, and pure joy that we see....the excitement in a child's eyes when they find the perfect pair of shoes, just can't be beat. We love bringing hope to the children in our community.

Donations
