Helping Children Learn

L.O.V.E. was born in 2003 when eleven dedicated volunteers with a vision to improve the quality of life for the at-risk children of Savannah met on Skidaway Island. They were a faith-based group representing the five churches on Skidaway Island, under the leadership of retired executive Frederick B. Loe.

Working in partnership with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, L.O.V.E. now encompasses nine elementary schools and has over 120 volunteers.

Using proven tutoring methods, this dedicated group tutor behind grade level elementary students one-on-one, primarily in reading and/or math and show that they care. Thus, the vision of Fred Loe and his fellow founders is assuring a better tomorrow for the children of Chatham County. 

L.O.V.E. works because of caring adults like you!


All are invited to hear Ms. Lila Black talk about Savannah’s Title 1 Schools and the children it serves.  Ms. Black is currently a counselor at Haven Elementary school, which was marked as one of the “failing” schools by the Governor.  She has spent the past 12 years counseling in the inner-city schools.  Prior to that, she was the interdisciplinary Team Leader and a behavior specialist at Georgia Regional Hospital and lead therapist in the children’s acute unit.  Her insight will be valuable to all L.O.V.E. mentors as they strive to help children in these schools.

The event will be held Monday, January 23rd at 4:00pm at the Skidaway Island United Methodist Church.  In addition there will be a Book Fair so that mentors can select new books to give to their students.
