Our Team has a Passion to Make a Meaningful Impact on the Opioid Epidemic.
Since our launch in 2021, the team at Live R.E.A.L. Foundation has worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact. We have trained over 150 people distributing over 430 doses of Narcan. We have talked with thousands of people about how opioid deaths do not discriminate. We have met hundreds of people that share a common sorrow of losing a loved one to this senseless epidemic.See how you can become part of the difference.
The Live R.E.A.L. Foundation is participating in a United Way Program
called the Strong Neighborhoods Initiative.
We are located at the Marie Ave House in Machesney Park
along with the Tommy Corral Memorial Fund and Secondary Success and Beyond. Together we provide community services directly in the community.
