About Us

Recipient of the Colorado Fatherhood Council’s 2013 Program of the year, established in 2008, the Struggle of Love Foundation (SOL) is a 501(c)3 Colorado community based non-profit organization created to provide community awareness, involvement and social activities, for the poor and underprivileged individuals.

Struggle of Love offers alternatives to those with limited opportunities that may not qualify for any other community based assistance programs. SOL’s wish is to inspire and educate our future generation so that they can make a positive difference in the world’s future. Their goal is to give back to the community in areas of struggle – “Showing Our Love to Save Our Lives.”
