From Foster Care to Founder Life

When Heather Lojeski was in middle school, her heart was broken when she realized that many children were being abused and neglected. When she married right after high school, she and her amazing husband Mark became foster parents. That experience, combined with their work at a camp for abused and neglected children, deepened a desire to help children in crisis situations in their community.

Through a series of life events including having a number of children (and homeschooling them!), pursuing a college degree in website design, landing a job marketing, a local zoo, a  layoff, and receiving a little nudge from a friend, Heather started a nonprofit organization called β€œFaith, Hope & Love.”

Heather Lojeski is the co-founder of Faith Hope & Love. Heather and her husband Mark, have been married for over 30 years they have 10 children and 3 grandchildren.

Their goal is to build Faith Hope & Love in the lives of children in crisis across Southeastern Wisconsin. In an effort to reach their immediate needs, the organization has developed a number of programs including Duffels for Kids (for children suddenly moved into foster care), BlastPacks (for children visiting incarcerated parents), and Birthday Closet (for children who otherwise would not be able to celebrate).

They’re working hard so no child in crisis feels abandoned or unseen.
