“Love, Olivia” is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2009. It is designed to be a Social Entrepreneurship to fill a current void in our community supporting families and children with special needs.
Through donation campaigns and innovative outreach activities, “Love, Olivia” is devoted to providing children with special needs in-kind donations, financial assistance, and access to events or activities adapted to the special needs community.
Furthermore, “Love, Olivia” will work with local organizations to raise awareness, establish partnerships, and distribute information on public and private services and resources designed specifically for special needs families.
Olivia is a girl with a fierce will to live. In her first year of life, she was hospitalized numerous times with bacterial meningitis, breathing apnea and acid reflux—near deadly combinations of the three illnesses. Inspired by her daughter, who has since been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and intellectual disability, along with other medical challenges, Karen Framnes founded Love, Olivia—an organization that provides children who have special needs with clothing, shoes, toys and books, while offering families community resources and financial assistance.
