Ashley N. Browning is a native of Dayton, Ohio. In 2004, Ashley left Dayton, Ohio to pursue her education, where she attended Kentucky State University, majoring in Criminal Justice. She graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She went on to continue her academic career at the University of Kentucky, majoring in Rehabilitation Counseling. And in 2009, she received her Master’s degree. Most recently, she completed her certification in Chemical Dependency from Union College, in December 2014.
Ashley's experience includes working with those suffering with substance abuse issues, severe mental illness and the homeless. In July of 2013, Ashley moved back to Dayton and discovered that there were many needs in her community that were not being met. Due to this, a burden was placed in her to help those in her community and she founded SoLoved, as a way to reach out to those in her community.
The Organization :
SoLoved is a project based organization in the Dayton community. We are committed to assisting different populations through community outreach by doing monthly initiatives. Our focal scripture is John 3:16, For God so loved the world…Our mission is HE gave, so we give! The purpose of SoLoved is to meet the needs of individuals in the community while expressing to them that Jesus loves them. We seek to aide and empower them not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually through the word of God.
SoLoved was founded as a way to let people know that God loves them and just how much He loves them, through scripture and outreach.
Outreach will be done by monthly initiatives in the community through witnessing and the donation of specific items; those items will be tagged with the SoLoved logo and focal scripture. This outreach effort is not in association with any particular church or affiliation.
