Helping Children Learn

L.O.V.E. was born in 1995 when eleven dedicated volunteers with a vision to improve the quality of life for the at-risk children of Savannah met on Skidaway Island. They were a faith-based group representing the five churches on Skidaway Island, under the leadership of retired executive Frederick B. Loe.

Working in partnership with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, L.O.V.E. now encompasses nine elementary schools and has over 120 volunteers.

Using proven tutoring methods, this dedicated group tutor behind grade level elementary students one-on-one, primarily in reading and/or math and show that they care. Thus, the vision of Fred Loe and his fellow founders is assuring a better tomorrow for the children of Chatham County. 

L.O.V.E. works because of caring adults like you!


Don’t miss the FALL BOOK FAIR on Monday, October 23 at 3:30 at the Skidaway Island United Methodist Church.  This is your chance to select free new books to give to your students to take home once they master reading them with you.

At 4:00 we are proud to present as a SPECIAL SPEAKER Ms. Aretha Rhone-Bush, Chief Academic Officer of SCCPSS.  She is a dynamic woman who will tell us more about the new literacy program introduced into the Savannah schools this year.  She will share ideas as to how we can use it to help our children learn.  She grew up in Title 1 schools in Walterboro, S.C. under difficult circumstances so has a unique perspective.  She earned a scholarship to University of Kentucky and her master’s degree at Johns Hopkins.  This promises to be a very interesting event.  Feel free to bring a friend. 

Please park in front parking lot and enter Bailey Hall entrance not back office entrance. Speaker is promptly at 4:00.
