About Our Founder

Lakesha Davis first started Lovingkindness Homes in 2020.  She found herself operating as more than just a landlord when her tenants needed help finding transportation, paying rent, or searching for a new job. Seeing that this need was beyond what she could offer through her current business, she founded Lovingkindness Transitional Services (Lovingkindness TSI) in 2021, a non-profit organization with a focus on offering services that help people transition into affordable housing.

Starting Lovingkindness TSI has allowed her to impact the community on a broader scale. She focuses on the main challenges people face in obtaining housing that they can afford long term: transportation, housing assistance, employment, and education.

Everything Lakesha does comes from her own personal experience. She has developed tools she used to get out of homelessness. She knows what it is like to need help navigating available programs, resources, and assistance. Lakesha’s  journey has given her a passion for guiding others to accomplish their own housing goals.
